A Church on Bolivar Heights

Harpers Ferry, WV

Bolivar Heights is a plateau above the historic town of Harpers Ferry. It is best known as the site of Civil War battles.

Bolivar Methodist Church was occupied by troops for military purposes during the war. 

A little way down the hill, also on Washington Street, is the Harpers Ferry Post Office, a solid-looking building of red brick. 

Sharing with Inspired Sunday.

If you want to tour the historic district of Harpers Ferry, you can park at the National Park Service Visitor Center and take the bus into town. Here we see the park entrance in early November.
