Hope was a gold rush town before Dawson or Nome. The buildings and flavor of the early days still charm, with the store downtown serving customers since 1896, and the turn- of-the-century log Social Hall still hosting community meetings, dances and weddings.

Hope lies on the northern end of Kenai Peninsula, on the south shore of the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet. The community lies on the 17-mile Hope Highway, northwest of the Sterling Highway, near the mouth of Resurrection Creek. It lies at approximately 6d 55m N Latitude, 149d 38m W Longitude (Sec. 33, T1N, R2W, Seward Meridian).
