This old tavern is surely showing its' age. It is definitely worth a peek inside. It adds to the overall feeling of Harper's Ferry. Bring your camera. If you park your car at the train station, it will cost you $15.00 for the day. Since this is a National Park, if you have an America The Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass, you will have to fill out the envelope with your information on it. Then leave your pass on your dashboard. You will then park for free. We had to wait a little bit for a parking spot, but it was well worth it!

You can peek in from the doorway that is open during the day. During certain hours there is a gentleman in historical garb that in inside and you can go in the building and he'll tell you some about the history.

My wife and I enjoyed all the museums, recreations and preserved history in Harpers Ferry and White Hall tavern is no exception. It is informative, as well as esthetically pleasing . I don’t what what they could possibly improve upon for this display so it has to be five stars .

A visit to White Hall Tavern in Harpers Ferry doesn't take long and provides an interesting and worthwhile look at the history of this fascinating town. We found the local guides very knowledgeable. They and the tavern itself added greatly to our education of the events of the early civil war. Highly recommended!

Frederick Roeder was a German immigrant, a prosperous baker, the father of seven children and Union sympathizer who was the first resident of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, to die during the Civil War. His home, business and other property were confiscated by the Union Army for used as a military bakery, post office and headquarters. His business/bakery was the White Hall Tavern on Potomac Street in the Lower Town, across the street from the Armory that was briefly captured by abolitionist John Brown during his raid in 1859. From 1845 until his death in 1861, Roeder's Confectionary attracted many customers with its enticing smell of freshly baked bread, cakes, candies and pies. He even carried small pies to the nearby train station to sell to hungry passengers. He was so successful that he enlarged the building by one and a half stories to create more space for his business and his large family. Over the years, it has been used as a warehouse, tavern and residence. Today, it is stop 23 on the park guide's tour.
