HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. (WOWK) – According to TripAdvisor, Harpers Ferry is a beautiful small town. The town is part historic village with many historic landmarks.

“I’m not usually one for history, but the historical aspect is really interesting, and I just love the layout of the land and how the town is,” said Aiden Brammeier, a Ranson resident.

Talyn Underwood works at The Coffee Mill in town. She says she loves Harpers Ferry because it attracts people from all over.

“We have a couple foreigners that come around from all different types of countries and everyone is just really nice, we make friendships,” said Underwood.

Many people say a big draw to the area is easy access to the hiking trails.

“There are a lot of hiking trails around here, but this is probably my favorite, absolutely,” said Amy Talkington, a Harpers Ferry visitor. 

“And I keep finding more spots that I’m always being surprised and amazed by. All the different things we find even though I’ve been so many times, still finding new places,” said Riley Ruments, a Harpers Ferry visitor.

In addition to the hiking trails, there is rich history and scenic views. Dedrik Shafer and Tremaine Shafer, who are brothers, say their family moved out here not only because of the town’s beauty but because of the peace and quiet the town offers.

“So we chose Harpers Ferry because it was one of the quietest places and peaceful and big stress relief off of my mom,” said Tremaine Shafer.
