Harpers Ferry National Historical Park


“John Brown’s Fort” at Harpers Ferry

Park entrance off US 340 and Washington Street

Much of Civil War interest in this beautiful park at the confluence of the Potomac and the Shenandoah rivers. John Brown's 1859 raid and Civil War activities are interpreted throughout the restored lower town area, which also features information about all periods of the town's history and residents. More Civil War information is available at the main visitor center on Bolivar Heights (a shuttle bus delivers visitors to lower town). Trails on Maryland and Loudoun Heights also offer wartime interpretation and views.

Park buildings open 9 am–5 pm daily. $10/vehicle or $5/person walk-in or bike-in.
