I visited Harpers Ferry last fall and forgot to download the images. This is the street leading into this historic little town and as you can see sitting above it is St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church.
St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia occupies a prominent location on the heights above Harpers Ferry. The original church was built in 1833 in a pseudo-Gothic style which it kept through the Civil War, in which it was the only church in Harpers Ferry to escape destruction. The church was extensively altered in 1896 in the then-popular Neo-Gothic style to produce the church seen today. The church commands a sweeping vista across the gorge of the Shenandoah River above its confluence with the Potomac River. A short trail leads from the church to Jefferson Rock. St. Peter’s Church is a mission church of St. James in Charles Town.
