The Jefferson Rock

In October 25, 1783 Thomas Jefferson stood on a rock formation on the Appalachian Trail above lower Harpers Ferry in what is now Harpers Ferry National Historic Park. The rock overlooks Shenandoah River, near where it meets the Potomac River. Jefferson was impressed by the view from the rock and wrote that the “scene is worth a voyage across the Atlantic”.
