City of Mount Hope, WV

Welcome to the City of Mount Hope

Municipal Stadium

Mount Hope Municipal Stadium will host the the 2013 Trade O Ree, the world's largest patch trading event to coincide with the 2013 BSA Jamboree at the neighboring Summit Bechtel Reserve.  For more info, visit their website.

On the verge of more-than 32,000 acres of stunning national parkland, you'll find a community to treasure, a great place to visit, and a wonderful place to live. Mount Hope looks much as it did during the early-1900's. Antique storefronts still line its sunny main street. Children regularly race to its ball fields after school. The bells at the Baptist Temple echo across the vale that the community of 1,500 rests within.
