Located in the historic town of Harpers Ferry West Virginia, site of the 1859 raid on the U S Armory, stands an old gathering place and watering hole for the local community, the White Hall Tavern. I was unable to find out when this building was actually constructed but learned that it was a very lively place during the 1850s. This establishment and the U S government were at odds for a time because of it's close proximity to the armory, meaning that armory workers likely spent a lot of time there and were in less than ideal working condition upon their return. Imagine that. :-)
Today, the building stands as it appears below, including those shabby curtains in the windows. I took the liberty of removing modern-day items like parking signs, cones and bollards that detract from it's 1850s look. There was also a distinct black mark across the front, where there had once been a covered porch, roof or an extended front entrance of some sort.
This historic town remains true to the time period of it's fame for the most part.
Thanks for visiting!
