Steam at Harpers Ferry is pleased to announce the completion of documentary film “Hidden in Plain Sight – Revealing the Concealed Harpers Ferry Cemeteries” in collaboration with Bot Studios under the joint project Rabbit Hole History Productions. Currently, we are privately screening the film with individuals in anticipation of a wider public screening opportunity in the near future.
