I had been by this historic site hundreds of time without stopping in, so I'm glad that I did this week. John Brown's Farm is small and quiet, but perfectly displayed to provide as much information and backgroung as possible. The burial site (rock) is surrounded with signboards that describe the era in which John Brown conducted his anti-slavery campaign, including his atempts to take over the armory at Harper's Ferry and free the Southern slaves.
I didn't go inside the farmhouse itself, but I did look inside and get some great views of the period furniture and other living arrangements of the day. This was well worth the time spent on visiting. I would HIGHLY recommend bringing your children here for the full visit, to provide them with some insights as to how our country freed its slaves and evolved into a modern society.
