Hope Christian Church
Hope, Warren County

Hope has four early churches, three of them built of stone. The Christian church was erected in 1844 on the site of the old Moravian Tavern. The congregation was organized in 1841 in a village founded by the Moravians and that had long had an Episcopal church and was soon to get Presbyterian and Methodist churches. The building is now used as the Community Center.
