The purchase of the historical Lake Hopatcong Train Station, in the fall of 2014, turned the page on an exciting new chapter for the Lake Hopatcong Foundation and the entire lake region. After a four-year rehabilitaiton project, the staiton now serves as the home of the Lake Hopatcong Foundation as well as an Environmental and Cultural Center, hosting meetings and community programming. The completion of the project, thus far, is a testament to the strong support from Morris County, the State of New Jersey, a host of private grants, the very generous donation of services and supplies by local craftsmen and vendors, and the generosity of so many within the Lake Hopatcong community.
The Lake Hopatcong Station is one of the most iconic buildings in our community, linking us with the era when the lake was a great northeast resort and thousands arrived by train weekly headed for their hotel, camp site, or cottage. The building, located in Landing, has lasting meaning for many lake residents, past and present, and has long been a central part of the history of the lake.
Lake Hopatcong Train Station Capital Campaign
Those who give at the recognition levels of $1,000 or more will be permanently recognized within the train station, but all donations are very much appreciated and will be appropriately acknowledged. Every dollar received will go toward restoration of the historic building and hasten its opening to the community.
