Tropic Green Lemoflide * 16 colors available in most areas I II I Park; Visit It; It's In Your Own Backyard If you're looking for a way to while away a few hours in pleasant and productive fashion, you might try looking in your own Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Basically, we think of visiting Harpers Ferry during the late Spring, the Summer and the early Fall months. So do most of the thousands upon thousands of tourists who visit the National Park Service facility each year. Actually, Harpers Ferry is a great place to visit all year round, because the moods of the Ferry change with the seasons. I In summer, the park's living history program is in full swing, and there are many activities to choose from. The days are often hot, the streets and parking areas crowded. In the Fall, the town is set...according to a NPS descriptive...against a kaleidoscope of colors as the leaves begin to turn. Heavy crowds are on hand for the weekends, but week days are quiet, cool and serene. Winter frequently finds the park under the blanket of snow. Nearby mountain roads and steep streets can be treacherous, but major highways are generally clear. Activities are at a minimum, although the visitor center is open daily. In the spring, the pace of "activity picks up. Some of the living history programs resume, as well as a limited schedule of conducted walks and talks. The days are generally cool, visitation is fairly low. There are many activities listed for the summer months at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. In the category of talks and demonstrations, children 8 to 12 will enjoy "Pieces of the Past", daily at 2 p.m.; while daily, continuously, everyone can visit the general store, the blacksmith shop, recruiting office, confectionery and the Harper House; and Friday through Sunday the pharmacy. All these help take one back in time to the War Between the States. Guided walking tours are also conducted daily...through programs...all designed to both inform and entertain. Even if your visit there has been a mole recent one, go back again. We'll bet you'll see something you missed before.
