Our Mission Statement: To discover,

of a citizen's action organization for the

H.O.P.S. is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to the
heritage education of the community and the preservation of historic
structures and sites in the Ocala Historic Districts.
Over the past thirty-five years H.O.P.S. has contributed greatly to
preservation through various programs and projects, including the
downtown gazebo, restoring the Snowden House and donating
$1000 each to the refurbishment of the First Presbyterian Church
steeple and the Fort King Restoration Project
These many projects are funded primarily by proceeds received
from H.O.P.S. Tours, and by donations from hundreds of generous
citizens and businesses. Some State of Florida funds were also
allocated to the Snowden House Project.
