From John Brown to W.E.B. DuBois, Harpers Ferry has been a prominent stage in Black History. During the Jim Crow era, Storer College students referred to Camp Hill as the Hill of Hope, as it represented a place of refuge, equality, and inspiration. But was this campus always safe from the civil strife of the times?
 
This tour ends with a stop inside the historic Lockwood House (newly preserved by the National Park Service) prior to its re-opening to the public. Our guide David Fox served as an interpretive park ranger at Harpers Ferry for 30 years, retiring in 2018. He is interested in everything the park has to offer but especially John Brown’s Raid, Black History and the intersection of natural and cultural history.
 
Meet at the front of Mather Training Center, 51 Mather Place. Easy walk on sidewalks and grass.
