Other things to note
Workers lived in 740 House during the civil war--you can see the remainders of this period in the stone basement, which remained after the house burned down and was rebuilt in the early 1900s. The house is called "a four-square," referring to the room arrangement and the traditional large front foyer.

Location

Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, United States

Harpers Ferry has incredible natural beauty including hiking trails, biking, charming small towns (especially ours), tons of fascinating American history -- and peace and quiet.

The Appalachian trail comes right into town, and Harpers Ferry is a major watering hole for "through hikers"-- people hiking from Georgia to Maine. River rafting companies are a ten-minute drive from town.

The area is historic: John Brown's raid took place downtown in 1859, and historic Storer College, created in 1865 to educate freed slaves after the Civil War. "Lower town" (also called "The Ferry") remains in quaint civil-wart-era style with both operating and historic shops and restaurants.

Some highlights you can still see around town: The arsenal that John Brown in an attempt to launch an armed slave revolt and the key battlefields fought by Union and Confederate armies. (Bolivar Heights and Antietam are among the famous.) The buildings that housed Storer College, and frequent civil war reenactments by the National Park Service.

Among many interesting local towns are Shepherdstown (the home of Shepherd University) and Charles town (where John Brown was executed.) Both feature historic sites, cute shops, and a variety of restaurants.
