It is said that Hope, in 1888 got its name when two residents threw a dime in the air and shot at it. One of them said, I hope you lose. His opponent did and the winner chose Hope. In 1912 a railroad line was under construction to the town when one of the major investors died on the Titanic. While no longer represented as a railroad town, Hope is currently a farming and ranching community.
