Significance: Hopewell Friends Meeting House is the oldest surviving building for religious assembly in Frederick County, and it is still used today in this manner. The east portion of the Meeting House was built from 1759 to 1761 and the western half was added between 1788-1794. The structure is a good example of the simple type of stone construction brought by the Quaker settlers, who came into the Shenandoah Valley from Pennsylvania. Its overall character is severely plain and functional. The original cemetery, which is enclosed by a limestone wall, is adjacent to the building.
