National Park Service
The Harpers Ferry Historical Association is a not-for-profit organization that supports education and interpretive programs in Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, and publishes educational material. This organization raises funds through the operation of the Park Bookshop, memberships, grants and donations. Volunteers for the Historical Association are also National Park Service volunteers providing information and orientation to park visitors.
Primary activities include assisting with sales and visitor service in the Bookshop, at the Visitor Center, or at tent and off-site sales.
