Do you ever wish you could go back in time and live in a quaint, historic mountain village, without leaving behind modern conveniences and access to great public and private schools? If so, then you may just have found your new home – Harpers Ferry. Harpers Ferry is the location of John Brown’s raid on the armory in 1859 that sparked the Civil War.
This historic town is situated at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers, where the states of West Virginia, Maryland, and Virginia meet. It is also just an hour’s drive from nearby metropolitan areas.
The community features two distinct sections – downtown and the mountain. Downtown Harpers Ferry features quaint boutique shops, local eateries, museums, and is surrounded by the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. The higher, mountainous areas surrounding the rivers have a more rustic feel and are perfect for homeowners seeking larger lots with more trees, more privacy, and beautiful views. In Harpers Ferry, you can enjoy a wide variety of outdoor sports – hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, zip lining, and rock climbing. There are hiking and biking trails within easy walking distance of the living history villages, and the Appalachian trail runs through town.
