Hopkinton is located along Highway 38 between Monticello and Delhi. It is approximately 20 miles from Manchester, Dyersville and Anamosa.  40 miles from Dubuque and Cedar Rapids. Hopkinton has been the home of the Delaware County Historical Museum Complex and is centered around the former Lenox College. The beautiful campus and buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places in America. The centerpiece of the campus is the Civil War Monument, dedicated November 17, 1865.
We are fortunate to have our own elementary school; Johnston Elementary, which consists of kindergarten through 5th grade students. Seventh through 12th grade attend high school in Delhi at Maquoketa Valley High. The welfare of the community is overseen by an excellent fire, ambulance, medical office, library, parks and recreation (swimming pool, play grounds, ball diamond, and shelters), agricultural businesses, feed stores, Citizen’s State Bank,  auto repairs, auto body repair and paint shop, several gas/convenience stores, recycling business, bar/restaurants, carpenters, ceramics, beauty shops, and day care facilities. We are also fortunate to have our own local weekly newspaper, the Delaware County Leader.
