PORT TOBACCO, Md. โ€” Haberdeventure Plantation was the home of Thomas Stone, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

The curved five-part brick house was built on the 442-acre property Stone purchased from his uncle, Daniel Jenifer, in 1770. The main house, surrounded by gardens and scenic landscapes, reflects the Georgian architectural style typical of the period.

Today, this historic site offers guided tours of the mansion, trails leading to the Stone Family Cemetery, and outbuildings including the horse and tobacco barns, the corn crib, and the tenant house.

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. โ€” Located at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers, Harpers Ferry is home to the iconic John Brown Fort, where abolitionist John Brown and his raiders made their last stand, the charming historic Lower Town, and the original campus of Storer College. For 25 years, Storer College was the only school in West Virginia where people of color could receive education beyond the primary level.

From the park, visitors can walk across the Potomac River from West Virginia into Maryland and visit the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park towpath (also part of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail). Alternatively, hikers can traverse the Appalachian National Scenic Trail as it winds through Lower Town.

WASHINGTON โ€” There is nothing like doing two of your favorite things at the same time; spending time with family and enjoying live baseball at the ballpark. The weather was perfect and although the Braves didn't pull out the win, I couldn't ask for better company on a Saturday afternoon.
