A school named after...a ship!
In 1633 Elizabeth Pole, founder of Taunton, sailed from England on the Speedwell along with two other ships, one of which was called the Hopewell. The Taunton neighborhood around Bay Street became known as "Hopewell" in honor of the early settlers’ ship. Hopewell School, a renaissance revival building constructed in 1914, is on the National Register of Historical Places, and has proudly served generations of Taunton families.
