The Historic Small Town That Every West Virginian Should Visit At Least Once

Many towns in West Virginia, if not all, still retain a piece of their history; those special structures that have stood strong into the newest century, their edifices a monument to a past long gone. But Harpers Ferry has retained more than a piece of its history; it has retained an entire district dating back to the 19th century.
