Tour Recap: In the Footsteps of John Brown’s Raid

By Elly Colmers Cowan

On the anniversary of the event, Preservation Maryland organized a car caravan and walking tour along the route of John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry, WV.

Thanks to Dennis Frye, Chief Historian of the National Historical Park, attendees received an in-depth and rare interior tour of the Kennedy Farm House, historically rented by Brown as a headquarters of sorts, and continued on to a walking tour through historical landscapes to the site of the filed raid on the Armory – all on a beautiful fall day.
