The Town of Hope Mills, North Carolina is a small town with big-town amenities. Its estimated 11,938 residents live in an area of only 6.2 miles square miles. A low crime rate and a highly rated public school system make this a wonderful place for a young family. The median age of residents at 31 years shows that the town's reputation holds true beyond the statistics.
Hope Mills is located in the south-central portion of North Carolina, about 12 miles south of Fayetteville and about 25 miles from Fort Bragg Army base and Pope Air Force Base. Many local residents are military families from both installations.
Quality of life is more than just a keyword for Hope Mills -- it is the foundation on which the town has grown. In academics, South View High School has been recognized for having the best overall athletic program in the county and has won state championships in six different sports: baseball, football, basketball, softball, cross country and golf. The school has one of the largest cultural arts programs in NC, and an outstanding International Baccalaureate Academy. That’s a lot of accomplishment for a small town high school.
With an abundance of water power and a wealth of timber resources, Hope Mills started life as Little Rockfish Village in 1766. Lumbering and the saw mill business carried the community until 1839 when the first cotton mill was built. That started a new era for the town and prosperity reigned until General Sherman's army burned most of the town, including the mills, during the Civil War.
Hope Mills has an even balance of wholesale, retail, labor, technical and service industry businesses. Its proximity to Fayetteville, NC, two military bases, and a major freight rail line running through town help to maintain economic stability even in periods of slow financial growth.
