The Historic Ocala Preservation Society, commonly referred to as HOPS, was founded and incorporated in 1980.

Mission Statement: To discover, conserve, preserve and memorialize the history and architecture of Ocala and Marion County, Florida, comprised of a citizen's action organization for the purpose of conservation and preservation.
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.
