Village scene of Hopewell Village. A gray wooden fence stretches along the entire foreground of the photograph. There is a white barn, with a red roof and a steeple, to the left and a white house with a gray roof and red addition in the right. In the background one can see a stair way that leads upward along the side of a stone wall. Two adults and a child stand beside a horse and wagon near the fence and other humans are standing in the doorway of the barn, beside the stone wall, and along the side of the barn.
