*Special Notice*


Due to the government shutdown, our Bookshop and offices on Shenandoah Street are closed.
Please know we are still operating behind the scenes, planning for this year's workshops and events.
We are still taking reservations for park tours, however, please know that park restrooms are closed, and emergency response times may be delayed. You can still place orders online, but shipping will be delayed.  

How can you help?  

1) Make a donation to help us recover from lost Bookshop revenue. Reminder: we are a nonprofit partner of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and all proceeds from Bookshop sales directly benefit park programs.  

2) Become a member to show support for your National Park during this difficult time.  

3) Contact your elected leaders and remind them of their obligation to faithfully steward our public lands for present and future generations.

“There is nothing so American as our national parks.”

3 States, 2 Rivers, 1 Park

At the majestic confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers—where Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia meet—Harpers Ferry National Historical Park encompasses 4,000 acres of parkland, including battlefields, 20 miles of hiking, and a restored historic district with exhibits and museums. Here you can hike, bike or stroll the quaint streets, see a living history demonstration, attend a workshop, or enjoy a guided tour. Whether you like history, nature or recreation, you will love Harpers Ferry.
Since 1971, the Harpers Ferry Park Association (formerly Historical Association) has been committed to enhancing the visitor experience at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Through our product and programs, we connect visitors to the unique and engaging stories of this small American town. Please explore our website to discover who we are, what we offer, and how you can support this national park.
