John Brown's Fort
Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

#NC-16730-OP - Notecards
Also available in Assortment Pack #AST-800

Since its construction in 1848, John Brown's Fort has been vandalized, dismantled, and moved four times all because of its fame as John Brown's stronghold. Originally a U.S. Armory fire-engine house, the building was the site of the capture of the famous abolitionist, John Brown, after his 1859 raid on Harpers Ferry.

Ransacked by souvenir-hunting Union and Confederate soldiers and travelers in the early 1860's, transported to the Chicago Exposition in 1891, later purchased by Storer College and moved to campus, the building was finally relocated close to its original site by the National Park Service in 1968.
