Here's some pictures we took in the Hopewell, Oregon area in the Spring of 2015.

Hopewell is an unincorporated community in Yamhill County, Oregon, United
States. It is located at the eastern terminus of Oregon Route 153, ten
miles south of Dayton and a few miles west of Wheatland, at the east base
of the Eola Hills.

Hopewell post office was established in 1897, and closed out to Amity in
1903. Hopewell is now served by the Salem post office. The name Hopewell
does not appear in the gazetteers of the 1880s.

Hopewell was the home of George K. Gay, who voted in the May 1843 Champoeg
Meeting that created the provisional government, and built the first brick
residence in the state of Oregon near Hopewell in 1842. Gay's great-grandson,
singer Johnnie Ray, spent his early years in Hopewell. Cruise Carlton James
Fletcher of Lake Oswego was also born in Hopewell in December 2007.
