You might expect the oldest town in the state to be something of a snoozefest, but Shepherdstown is quite the opposite – it boasts a lively music and arts scene, eclectic shops, and equally eclectic locals. It’s also a thriving college town, thanks to Shepherd University. The town also has long attracted artists, writers, and professors as permanent residents. As a result, the town has a unique feel that attracts those who are looking for something a bit more interesting than your average small town.
Situated along the Potomac River in the lower Shenandoah Valley, Shepherdstown benefits from the beautiful natural setting that makes it ideal for outdoor pursuits such as hiking and biking along the canal and rafting and kayaking on the Potomac.
The summer brings one of the top theater festivals in the nation, The Contemporary American Theater Festival, to Shepherdstown. Shepherdstown residents also take part in the annual May Day festival, shop at the local farmers’ market, and host events at the 20-acre Morgan’s Grove Park. The quaint downtown area boasts a variety of shops and restaurants. The Cress Creek Country Club and golf course on the edge of town is an ideal location for avid golfers.
