Harpers Ferry Part 2

Photos of the town.

Potomac Street is where the center housing the information on Lewis and Clarks expedition, White Hall Tavern, and other shops are. Since it was the middle of August we did go to one of the shops and got ice cream there.

This next street is High St. The name says it all, this street goes up a hill. The steps up to St Peter’s Roman Catholic Church are on the left just past the entrance to this street. John Browns Wax Museum is on the right on this street. Lack of time did not allow us to visit but again we plan to go back.

Wagons sitting on Shenandoah St. across from town:

White Hall Tavern was ran by an abolitionist named Frederick Roeder. He was the first townsperson to die in The Civil War. More here:

This is it for today. I’m still debating whether to put pictures from St Peter’s Roman Catholic church or of the views I took. I guess we’ll all find out, won’t we? Lol. Hope you enjoyed.

Peace.

    Cool photos and history. Put the photo’s of the St. Peter’s Catholic Church. I think some of them are so beautiful.

    Have you seen the PBS series called “God In American” about the affects of religion in American politics and history, I have learned so much.

    Ruth, I haven’t but I’ll see if someone put it up on youtube. Your wish is my command. Some of the church photos are coming up.
