I had the opportunity to go on a field trip with the 8th Grade Class at my school back in May. We visited Harpers Ferry, WV. I had never been there before, but I thought it was a lovely trip. I took several pictures that I thought I would share with you today of this historic old town. The first 6 of these pictures I got from the Internet because I did not capture any of these and I thought they were a great depiction of the area.
Harpers Ferry is an historic town in Jefferson Co., WV. It is situated right where WV, VA, and MD meet. Historically, Harpers Ferry is best known for John Brown’s raid on the Armory in 1859 and its role in the American Civil War. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) headquarters is located in Harpers Ferry and the town is one of only a few through which the Appalachian Trail passes directly.
The rest of the photos were taken by me. And they are of the town of Harpers Ferry.
