History

Hop Bottom was formerly known as "Foster." Indians once lived in the area and the only clear meadows to be found were near the bottom of the creek. These meadows were covered with hop vines, leading the early settlers to coin the town, "Hop Bottom."[1] The new name reflected the hops which were grown in the valley for local breweries.
