We visited John Brown's farm many times. Our one daughter had done a report on John Brown's life so it was so nice to be able to experience his farm first hand! Our grandchildren have also enjoyed our visits to the farm.
We snow shoed to the John Brown Site and the trails are beautiful !!! Although the Site was closed there was a very informative tour that you could take on your phone..Well worth the trip !!
A very interesting and little known man who made a huge impact on our country! Although Harper's Ferry put him in the History books, he apparently was a very influential individual in his hometown of Lake Placid, NY, Thoroughly enjoyable adventure in to our past.
We always like to see historical sites in new areas. John Brown's is right near the Olympic ski jumps and so easy to find. We were there in January so we were the only people there. Just walked around the property for a bit. Interesting story. Glad we stopped.
For $3.00, this was the best place to visit and worth 10 times the price. It really gives you an outlook at what it was like for the times, how people lived, survived, existed.

The grounds of the site are very nice for walking around and viewing the grave site where John Brown and others are buried. For a small fee you get a brief guided tour of the house. The barn also has exhibits and is free to tour.
The site was exceptionally well organized with displays and a self-guided tour accessible via cell phone but the very knowledgeable guide raised it to mandatory first stop on a visit. She recomended specific trails that had the best colors today. This was one of the most thought-provoking historic tours i've been on. Not only did it examine violence as a... 更多
If you are in the area you must stop by to see this site. The staff is very friendly and educated. You can see the home, grave site, and beautiful views of the trees and mountains. I would have liked to learn more on the front end of the visit. Perhaps more reading about John Brown at the beginning. I... 更多
You can do it all in less than an hour. You can walk around the grounds & grave site for free. You pay a nominal $2 to go inside the house.
