Hope Town is “picture perfect” and looks like you are in Paradise,
the views make anyone want to be a photographer. The famous candy
striped red and white light house over looks most of
Hope Town and
looks like a mother watching over her children.
Hope Town was
founded by the Loyalist Wyannie Malone and her family in 1785 and
resembles New England with clapboard, brightly colored homes and
white picket fences with the flamboyant tropical gardens.
When exploring the village, the streets may seem like sidewalks to
you and are lined with rainbow colors of local flowers especially
the bougainvillea and hibiscus of every shade. There is no motorized
traffic allowed within the village, so walking or bicycling are you
options. Boats of every shape and description pass through the
protected Hope Town Harbour. The Wyannie Malone Museum is one of the most
popular sites to see. Named after the founder of this settlement, it
is filled with historic photos, documents, maps, quilts, china,
simple treasures and other heirlooms of the past. For those who want
to see the independent and extraordinary survival skills of these
brave original loyalists, you will see it continues on in the
present day local residents. Located in the village of
one will find two grocery stores, Harbour View Grocery on the edge
of the Harbour and Vernon's Grocery on Back Street, known for their
fresh baked bread and delicious home-made pies. Within the village
of Hope Town one will also find art galleries, bike rentals, boat
rentals, golf cart rentals, sports fishing charters, dive shop,
clothing shops, several gift and jewelry boutiques, hardware store,
a coin-operated laundry, liquor store, telephone company, marinas,
and Assembly of God and St. James Churches.
