Harpers Ferry Attractions

With a population that hovers right around 300 and a timeless downtown that looks like an illustration torn from a book about the Civil War, Harpers Ferry is one of the United States' most historic towns. The site of a former armory, John Brown staged his armed slave revolt here and the town played a role in the unfolding of the Civil War. Hikers flock to Harpers Ferry to stroll the Appalachian Trail, which charts a course through town, coming within steps of the site where Lewis and Clark made the first stop on their cross-country trip. Virginia may be for lovers, but Harpers Ferry isn't just for history buffs—from whitewater rafting to thrilling ghost tours—you'll find it here, at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers.
