Listening to those National Park Rangers give the history about John Brown who seems to me to be a bit of a rogue (I think he was hung outside the nearrby Charles Town courthouse), was fascinating. They certainly know their stuff and go out of their way to make it interesting.Seeing the train disappear through the tunnel and then climbing up to Jefferson's stone to admire the view that Jefferson himself used to enjoy makes for an interesting and informativee day out. This is where the Shanandoah and Potomac meet. This is truly must visit if you are anywhere near this location. Park up at the carpark provided by the national parrk service and stroll around this historic town. This is one of my top choices in and around Virginia. I know it is in West Virginia but if that hadn't seceded from the great state of Virginia we could have claimed it as our own. I take all visitors from the Uk there. They all love it.
