Village of Hopwood

         
 

Pearl of the Pike

In the early to mid 1800s, the National Road, now US 40, was the main east-west route of the new nation... and a very important one as the nation expanded westward. Westbound travelers with horses, wagons, and livestock would have first had to cross through a hundred or more miles of the Allegheny Mountains. At the foot of the final major ridge lay the Village of Hopwood, founded in 1791. Hopwood, known as the pearl of the pike, was a major resting stop for traffic in both directions and hence a site of considerable commerce.

Hopwood has evolved with the times. Yet many structures from the earlier era of the National Road remain. Because of their characteristic stone construction, most structures are easily identifiable. Prominent are the Chez Girard restaurant and ??? Gift Shop. Hopwood's pleasant character is still welcoming to the visitors.
