St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church built 1833, remodeled 1896, Harpers Ferry, Shenandoah River, West Virginia, USA.
St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church stands prominently above Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, USA. The original church was built in 1833 in a pseudo-Gothic style and escaped destruction in the American Civil War. The church was extensively altered in 1896 in the then-popular Neo-Gothic style to produce the church seen today (listed on the National Register of Historic Places). The church commands a sweeping vista across the gorge of the Shenandoah River above its confluence with the Potomac River. A short trail leads from the church to Jefferson Rock.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
