Community Building and Historic Preservation
With four towns, two counties, and the state, all claiming at least some portion of Lake Hopatcong, the community can sometimes feel disjointed. One of the goals of the Lake Hopatcong Foundation is to build the sense of lake community, and to support the local businesses that surround it.
In November 2014, the Lake Hopatcong Foundation purchased the Lake Hopatcong Train Station in Landing, with the intention of rehabilitating the building in a way that serves as the LHF office as well as a shared community space.
The Lake Hopatcong Foundation sponsors an annual “Shop Local Lake Hopatcong” promotion, which encourages shoppers to go to local businesses throughout the month of July and to celebrate and promote their favorite local businesses on social media!
