New Hope was a church community two miles north of Troup and just east of Farm Road 346 in southern Smith County. By 1903 the area had a one-teacher White school with twenty-seven students and a three-teacher Black school with 129 students. A 1936 map showed the community as a school and a few scattered farms along mostly dirt roads. By 1952 the New Hope School had been consolidated into the Arp Independent School District. A 1973 map shows New Hope as a church, a cemetery, and a sparse assortment of dwellings; by that time a local road had been paved, but most were still dirt. The community was not shown on the 1981 county highway map. In 2000 the population was seventy-five.
