  • At the moment I entered the establishment, I was greeted by a sweet young lady (whether barmaid or publican, I did not ask) who we found to be very knowledgeable and personable. She proceeded to relate to us the events of John Brown’s raid and it’s affect on the community, as well as the period up to and after the war, and how her pub was often central to these events – as a simple escape from the turmoil over a shot of whiskey, provide for social gathering to debate such events, or even to conspire plans to aid in the advancement of one side or the other. Warning, be under no illusions that her charm and attraction means she is simple or meek – she can quickly quench a drunken brawl, as well as pummel the best in an aggressive game of checkers.
  • Those looking for a drink or two after a day of exploring Harpers Ferry might be disappointed to learn that this place is no longer what it used be. History buffs, on the other hand, will delight in learning about the place. Visitors can see what's inside but are barred by a wooden fence from entering. Stop by for pictures and read up on the history if you find yourself in the area.
