Harpers Ferry at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers
Today staff and volunteers of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy having traveled from as far away as the Hudson Valley in NY, gathered to say goodbye to a refuge and an old friend. The last original shelter along the Appalachian Trail will be dismantled. . These original shelters were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps #nationalservice program c. 1936. The shelter will be transported to Cowans gap State Park, PA and then reassembled there.
