Photo of St. Peters Church

St. Peter's Church was constructed in the 1830s and survived the many Civil War battles fought in the area. The church was renovated in 1896, but the 44 hand-carved stone steps from High Street to the Church and Jefferson Rock were preserved. The church can be seen clearly on the walk up the stone steps to Jefferson Rock. St. Peter's Church is a mission church of St. James in Charles Town and is operated as an historic chapel within the Harpers Ferry National Park. A Mass is offered at the historic church Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
