Here at Harpers Ferry, where the Potomac River cuts through the Blue Ridge, you encounter the past and its stories in magnificent expanses and hidden quarters. In the force of these rushing waters George Washington envisioned military strength and chose Harpers Ferry as the site for a US Armory. Factories from the early 1800s witnessed innovations that fueled the Industrial Revolution. Here abolitionist John Brown struck a blow against slavery, and soon the Civil War trapped the town between North and South. In the wake of war's devastation, legendary Civil Rights leaders met at Storer College and claimed "every single right that belongs to a freeborn American."

From The Point, where the two rivers meet, you can see the V-shaped water gap. People on the move found their way through this natural corridor—first American Indians, then European settlers. Robert Harper started a ferry across the Potomac here in 1747. By the early 1800s the rivers powered the armory complex and commercial mills. The revolutionary method of manufacturing with interchangeable parts was perfected at the Halls Island rifle factory. See Industry Museum, US Armory site, and Virginius and Halls islands.

In October 1859, determined to arm enslaved people and spark rebellion, John Brown and his followers seized the armory and several other strategic points. The raid failed, with most men killed or captured. Brown's trial and execution focused attention on the issue of slavery and propelled the nation toward civil war. John Brown's Fort stands near its original location; nearby is the John Brown Museum.

Explore wartime Harpers Ferry at Civil War and 1862 Battle of Harpers Ferry exhibits. Visit the battle sites where Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson forced the war's largest surrender of US troops at Bolivar Heights, Schoolhouse Ridge, and the Murphy-Chamber's Farm.

John Brown's raid made Harpers Ferry a symbol of freedom. Visit Black Voices and John Brown Museum. After the war Baptist missionaries founded Storer College to educate students of any race, male or female. Meet alumni like Don Redman and Coralie Franklin Cook in the Storer College exhibit and explore the former Storer College Campus. Harpers Ferry also attracted national Civil Rights leaders and organizations. Visit the Niagara Movement exhibit and the Murphy-Chambers Farm.

Stroll on a level riverside path; climb to a hilltop vista point; join up with the long-distance Appalachian Trail, C&O Canal towpath, or Potomac Heritage Trail. A climb to Jefferson Rock, Loudoun Heights, or Maryland Heights will reward you with vistas of the town and its dramatic natural setting.
