No. 4: Historic Harpers Ferry
Whole armies of ghosts are said to march through the countryside above Harpers Ferry, not coincidentally one of the most important historic locales in West Virginia. Here in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers join, the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park protects a landscape untouched by time. Ghostly residents reputedly haunt its cobbled streets and stare with empty eyes from windows overlooking a landscape little changed since the Civil War and John Brown’s murderous rebellion there.
