Established in 1734 by Thomas Shepherd, Shepherdstown is the oldest town in West Virginia and has a deep-rooted heritage. Originally named Mecklenburg in 1762, the town was later changed to Shepherdstown in honor of its founder and was home to a large number of German settlers. A German school was founded in the town as early as 1762 and the main street is still called German Street to this day. Shepherdstown is renowned for being the birthplace of the Steamboat in 1787 by James Rumsey and is commemorated by the Rumsey Monument that stands in the center of the town.
Shepherdstown is also in the middle of a historic Civil War area and home to several famous sites, including the Antietam Battlefield, where the Civil War’s single most bloody day of battle was fought, and the town of Harpers Ferry, famous for being the place where the abolitionist John Brown was captured. This small college town has a population of 1800 and is home to an eclectic collection of beautifully preserved old homes, quaint boutique and stores, and inviting coffee shops.
