Harpers Ferry is a small town in West Virginia that’s considered something of a hidden treasure among locals. With scenic views and less of the hustle and bustle of other towns, Harpers Ferry is a wonderful reprieve from everyday life. It may not be particularly large, and while it doesn’t house a particularly large population, any of its shortcomings don’t stop Harpers Ferry from being a great place to have a doggy day trip.
Harpers Ferry is also a historic locale. In the mid-1850s, famous abolitionist John Brown attempted to incite a slave revolt at Harpers Ferry. The US Marines, commanded by Robert E. Lee himself, quashed the revolt. You can still visit the site of the raid, now named John Brown's Fort. To learn more about the failed rebellion, head to the John Brown Wax Museum. Dogs are, unfortunately not allowed.
