cool to know

The West Virginia section of the A.T. passes through the heart of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, the site of John Brown's Raid and notable Civil War battles. Harpers Ferry is home to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Headquarters and Visitor Center, known as the "psychological halfway point" of the Appalachian Trail. The path connecting the A.T. to the ATC passes through the campus of the former Storer College, created to provide education for freed enslaved people after the Civil War.
