Hopewell House’s setting on an historic farm makes it a very unique and special place which provides a peaceful setting for our residential group homes. Benches sporadically placed around the property encourage reflection. The beautiful grounds include a wide variety of trees, shrubs, and flowers. Blue jays, robins, cardinals, and orioles make welcome appearances throughout the year.
The Main Farm House was built sometime in the 1740′s and was the homestead securing the 480-acre Land Grant from King Charles. Additions to the east and rear portions of the house were from homes built in the same period and were relocated from the Hopewell, Virginia area. Renovations and additions to the Main House have been carried out carefully in order to maintain the historical accuracy and value of the home. It is registered with the Centerville Historical Society and is considered one of the oldest standing homes in the Northern Virginia area.
Adding to the scenery is the original well in the front of the house, said to be one of the deepest hand dug wells in this area. It was measured at 90 feet, and has been tested and found to have excellent water to this day. A split rail fence that surrounds the farm adds to the charming rural atmosphere, as do several other historic structures on the property.
