Chris Craig

Certified 2017


Christopher Craig first fell in love with Harpers Ferry in 1984 while on a long-distance bicycle tour. During his 15 years in Washington, DC, he frequently visited Harpers Ferry to hike, bicycle or absorb the town’s history.

In 2005, he made the move to full-time residency in his favorite town, and he operated a bed and breakfast in his historic home for nearly 10 years. Chris became immersed in the history of Harpers Ferry through reading, attending programs, and researching the history of his house.

Prior to his inn keeping, Chris was a high school teacher for 20 years. He has served as a volunteer editor and officer in various professional, non-profit and community organizations, including the Harpers Ferry Civil War Round Table. He continues to enjoy the outdoors in and around his home, and he has began a series of section hikes on the Appalachian Trail, which he hopes to complete by 2026.
