Harpers Ferry National Historic Park
Mo to Su from 08:00 AM to 05:00 PMHarpers Ferry is best known as the site of abolitionist John Brown's ill-fated raid on a federal arsenal and the small town's unwitting involvement in the Civil War. Harpers Ferry stretches along a rugged hillside at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers. The town has not only survived the Civil War but also endured periodic flooding. The steep hill above the historic area is home to several shops and small eateries.
