HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - The restoration of the historic Harpers Ferry Train Station has begun, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park officials say.
This process will be completed over the next several years and will involve several phases of work, park officials said in a news release.
Through Nov. 8, the exterior of the station will be cleaned. This gentle washing of the station will remove surface dirt and grime without harming the historic fabric of the building, the news release said.
On Friday, the parking spaces adjacent to the front of the station will be blocked off to allow that section of the building to be cleaned. The washing process will occur on weekdays only from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will take approximately eight days to complete.
