I am not the first to say that a place found me, rather than the other way around. The first time I visited Harper’s Ferry was in the middle of winter. February, I think. There was snow on the ground and I walked the winding path to Jefferson Rock and saw the famous view. Little did I know that this short day trip from Washington, DC would turn into an annual
trek, which would turn into a business called Steam at Harper’s Ferry.
What I hope to do with this blog is post a little history, fiction, rumors and tales about Harper’s Ferry and the region. I want to write about tangible things which get lost in the virtual world. More than a Civil War experience, this little town has a history of industry, creativity, education and innovation. Like most small towns.
I hope this blog will inspire you to visit Harper’s Ferry, or maybe even invent something, write a story or two, or investigate the history of your own small towns.
Something wonderful is out there waiting to find you.
Thank you for reading!
