10 In 1782 Robert Harper, the founder of Harpers Ferry, set aside four acres of the hillside for a cemetery where Harper, his family and many others are now buried.
12 Since the time of John Harper the view from Harper Cemetery remains one of the most stupendous in nature and burial sites are still available.
13 On October 25, 1783, Thomas Jefferson visited Harpers Ferry, viewing "the passage of the Patowmac though the Blue Ridge" from a rock that now bears his name. In 1785, Jefferson's description of this view was published in the Notes on the State of Virginia

19 The Harper House was used as a tavern for about 20 years after the death of Mr. Harper. It is very possible that Meriwether Lewis stayed here in 1803 when he obtained supplies for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are known to have stayed in the Harper House. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Noah Swayne definitely stayed here, since he owned the house — he married Sarah Ann Wager, one of Robert Harper's heirs.

22 The White Hall Tavern, which was located directly across from the Armory, was good for drinking, debating politics, and trash-talking about your boss — but bad for working. Somewhat understandably, for a while the Armory shut down the White Hall Tavern, saying that it "ruined morals and work ethics, and threatened armory production."
