Taken: July 28, 2007
Caption: Ferry Hill Place
Additional Description: Overlooking the present day Rumsey Bridge, and the sites of Packhorse / Blackfordís / Botelerís / Shepherdstown ford, Ferry Hill Place offers a commanding view of the Potomac River valley. With close proximity to Shepherdstown, it is easy to imagine Col. Douglas slipping across the river to visit family in secret, as he indicated in post war writings.
