  • 2. GWWO’s relationship with Harpers Ferry National Historical Park began more than a decade ago and has encompassed numerous projects within the historic park. GWWO worked with the National Park Service to complete the exterior restoration and interior rehabilitation of the historic Harpers Ferry train station. The facility is shared by the National Park Service, the Town of Harpers Ferry, and CSX. Originally construction in 1894, the train station was moved during railroad improvements to its current location in 1931. The $1.75M project included: • Evaluation and documentation of the existing facility and completion of an Historic Structures Report • Exterior restoration of the facility to its post-move 1931 appearance, including reconstruction of a second story tower that was removed after the move • Interior rehabilitation for shared use, including visitor orientation and comfort facilities, exhibits and ticketing • Removal of the structure from its current failing foundation and replacement on a new full perimeter concrete footing, as well as creation of a new partial basement to house the new mechanical systems National Park Service Harpers Ferry, West Virginia Harpers Ferry National Historic Park.
