Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, USA.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

For gay and lesbian lovers of history, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia must stand out as a must visit destination. It was here that John Brown and his men commandeered the federal arsenal on the late evening of Sunday, October 16, 1859. Their purpose was to secure the guns at the arsenal to arm and free the slaves. Eventually overwhelmed by Robert E. Lee and his men, the raid was a failure. But by the time of his death by hanging on December 2 in Charles Town, Brown had become a martyr for the cause. Frederick Douglass said later “If John Brown did not end the war that ended slavery, he did at least begin the war that ended slavery.” In 2009, 150 years later, the country celebrated the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, the Centennial of the NAACP, and the Inauguration of our first African American President.

Harpers Ferry has a good selection of gay friendly hotels, inns, traditional guesthouses and bed and breakfast accommodations for the gay and lesbian traveler to choose from. There’s a good range of prices and amenities on offer to give even the most discerning gay and lesbian traveler plenty of choice.

Harpers Ferry also offers a good selection of restaurants and cafes as well as shops and galleries, many focusing on the historic importance of the town.

After suffering the ravages of the Civil War and a series of torrential floods, Harpers Ferry was all but abandoned leaving the empty shells of its homes and factories to slowly become overgrown by the dense forest that covers the surrounding hills. Almost all of Harpers Ferry has since been reconstructed as an outdoor museum, combining historical importance and natural beauty. Enough of the original buildings and cobbled streets survive, to give a good sense of how things used to be, and the restoration project has so far managed to re-create the townscape without making it feel too much like a theme park.

So, for gay and lesbian lovers of American history, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia is a must visit destination.
