Hope Cemetery and Mausoleum is a historic cemetery and mausoleum located at Newark Valley in Tioga County, New York. It was established as a community burial ground in 1820 and subsequently expanded through a series of additions made between 1866 and 1931. The mausoleum was built of reinforced concrete in the 1920s in a style strongly reminiscent of Greek Revival architecture. It reportedly contains 200 crypts, plus four private rooms containing an additional 22 crypts.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[1]
