Harper's Ferry National Historical Park

Located on the border and in the three states of West Virginia, Maryland, and Virginia, the center of the park is a little restored village located where the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers meet and where the C&O Canal is. Harpers Ferry was the manufacturing center where the first successful application of interchangeable parts occurred. Here is where the first successful American railroad came. During Civil War fighting the largest surrender of Federal troops happened here. One of the earliest integrated schools dedicated to educating all equally began here.
