"Small Town, great atmosphere" Shepherdstown by Toughluck

Shepherdstown Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 35 photos

Shepherdstown sits high on a bluff of the Potomac River. It's not a river town, as there is no town down by the river. But it is here because of the river. A stream leads from town down to the Potomac at a place where a ferry could land. Just across the river is another landing with another stream coming down from the other bluff, providing a gentle slope for horses and wagons to descend or climb. Here a ferry developed and on the south side of the river, up on the bluff beyond the reach of spring floods Shepherdstown began.
