Hopewell is an unincorporated community in Warren County, in the U.S. state of Missouri.[1]

History[edit]

Hopewell was originally called "Hopewell Academy", and under the latter name was laid out in 1876. [2] The original name is somewhat of a misnomer, since there was no academy near the town site.[2] A post office called Hopewell Academy was established in 1863, and remained in operation until 1906.[3]
