The Downtown Hopewell Historic District Nomination Update and Boundary Adjustment, 2013, is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places under the same criteria as described in the original 2002 Nomination - Criterion A for association with historic events and trends in the area of Commerce, and Criterion C for Architecture. With this nomination update, the district's Period of Significance is established as 1915 to 1960. The expanded Period of Significance ends in 1960 with the construction of 265 East Broadway Avenue (VDHR File #116-5009/116-5031-0032). This building, known as the Arcades Building, retains good integrity and represents the last example of a distinctive style of commercial canopy that formerly characterized the facades of many of Hopewell's commercial buildings.
