The Point: Meeting Place of 3 States and 2 Rivers


The place where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet can be found in the town of Harpers Ferry and is known as "The Point". The states of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia also meet in the same area. What is today known as Harpers Ferry National Historic Park was a very strategic location during the country's Civil War.

Social Media Description

Have you ever visited Harpers Ferry National Historic Park?

As you probably would expect, Harpers Ferry is filled with history, but there's so much more to see and do. The town of Harpers Ferry and the historic park are all in the same general area. This often makes it difficult to know which you are actually in as you explore the streets.

From the main parking area near the visitor center, you have the choice of riding a shuttle, hiking (or driving) to the historic area. Since parking is very limited, we used the other two options. Scott rode the shuttle to avoid putting too much stress on his knee and I hiked. We met up at "The Point", where 2 rivers and 3 states meet!
