Hidden Gem, Holy of Holies

This place is incredible, the most moving historical site I have ever visited. When you visit, I hope you are able to see the inside - this will not be possible until renovations are complete...

Love visiting this place.

While this is a privately owned location ir is of great historical significance. We enjoyed very much visiting here. We paid the owners for our visit and did not regret the cost at all.

Kind of Creepy!

Stopped on the way to Harper's Ferry..we were the only ones there..almost expected John Brown to walk out! I'm sure it looks identical to the way it looked to him back in the day..
