Weekend Travels: Ruins of St. John’s Episcopal Church at Harpers Ferry

As I said earlier, I spent a lot of time walking around and photographing the ruins of St. John’s Episcopal Church at Harpers Ferry.

The church was used as a barracks and a hospital during the Civil War, and was damaged at that time. Although the church was rebuilt, it was soon abandoned after a new church was built, leaving these remains on the hill.

I took a lot more pictures, many of which are on my Flickr stream.
