Description
A National Park covering 3,745 acres in three states with many diverse points of interest and many miles of hiking trails.

In 1944, the park was first established as Harpers Ferry National Monument as “a national public memorial commemorating historical events.” In 1963, it became Harpers Ferry National Historical Park to “more accurately represent the site’s evolution.” Today, the park has many important cultural sites, historic and archaeological sites, historic town lands, cultural landscapes, hardwood forests, open and agricultural fields, habitats, wetlands, and riparian areas.

Open year round, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day.
