We recently took a quick trip to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Harpers Ferry is where the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers meet.
It is an old town filled with lots of great history. The National Park has hiking trails, water sports like rafting. areas for picnicking, and a variety of living museums. You can tour a dry goods store, a boarding house, a blacksmith shop, old churches, John Brown's fort, taverns, exhibits about Lewis and Clarke, Slavery, Civil War, and John Brown.
John Brown's Fort
Saint Peter's Church was built in 1830's. It no longer holds daily Mass, but it is open to the public daily. They do still offer Mass at 11:00 on Sundays. It's a beautiful church and a wonderful place for Catholics to visit. For more history about the church visit this website.
