Civil War sites?

Hi all, am interested in visiting Harper's Ferry primarily to see the town from the standpoint of the Civil War. In particular, is the armory that John Brown raided still there & available for viewing?

Wow, Learn something everyday. Clicked the link on this site for John Brown's Fort (Armory).

According to the story it was dismantled and moved to Chicago. Then to DC and then back to Harpers Ferry where it has been re-built twice.
