About This Place
Hop Bottom is a Borough of Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 333 as of the 2000 census. The name comes from the hop, a plant providing flowers for brewing.
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." The new name reflected the hops which were grown in the valley for local breweries.
