A Great Place to Work
Some of the primary topics of interest at Harpers Ferry are the revealing connections between history and landscape, the influence of the Industrial Revolution on the human experience, the impact of John Brown's raid and the Civil War on the community and the nation, and the continuing struggle to achieve the American ideal of freedom and equality. It is truly a park like no other. We offer Internships in a wide variety of fields, so if you don't see an opportunity listed that fits your studies or interests, please ask. We also offer flexible Internships that can work with your class schedule during the school year.
