LAKE HOPATCONG FOUNDATION ENVIRONMENTAL AND CULTURAL CENTER AT THE LAKE HOPATCONG STATION-just received a Morris County historic marker.

The Lake Hopatcong Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the lake environment and enhancing the lake experience, bringing together public and private resources to encourage a culture of sustainability and stewardship on and around New Jersey’s largest lake, for this and future generations.

The Foundation headquarters, as well as an environmental and cultural center, are located at the historic Lake Hopatcong Station in Landing. The Lake Hopatcong Foundation is actively engaged in the historic preservation of the iconic stone structure that first opened in 1911 as a showcase for the Lackawanna Railroad. The Morris Canal, two steamboat lines, and the Morris County Traction Company trolley also converged at the heavily visited station creating a transportation hub for the Lake Hopatcong region.

The Lake Hopatcong Station is open for tours by appointment ([email protected]) as well as for public event offerings on cultural, environmental, and/or historical topics. The grounds of the station, which include stone paths and native gardens, are open for public passive recreation from dawn to dusk.

Information about programs available at the environmental and cultural center as well as on the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Floating Classroom can be found at lakehopatcongfoundation.org.
