Photos courtesy M. D. Monk
Hopewell Meeting was established 1734 in Frederick County, Virginia.  Richard Beeson, Jr. in his 11/1/1748 will gave nine acres of land for the meeting house. It is located 5 miles north of Winchester, Virginia.

"Its staunch walls in colonial days often cast back the echoes of howling wolves and more than once reflected the shadows of painted Indians." (History of Hopewell)
