Sharpsburg, MD

This Maryland community, linked to Shepherdstown, W.Va. by a highway bridge (Md. Rt. 34) across the Potomac, played a key role in the Civil War and the Battle of Antietam. At the Kennedy Farmhouse, on Chestnut Grove Road, arms were collected for John Brown and his famous raid on Harpers Ferry. The house is open Saturdays and Sundays during the summer or by appointment.
