As West Virginia's oldest town, Shepherdstown has been a focal point of the state's rich heritage since it was chartered in 1762 and was still part of Virginia. Today, Shepherdstown provides homebuyers with plenty of history to match a friendly, small-town atmosphere and incredible real estate options.
Fewer than 2,000 residents currently call Shepherdstown their home and the town's tranquil lifestyle is enhanced by its location in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle along the Potomac River in Jefferson County. Charm and history are seamlessly entwined in Shepherdstown, where many of the buildings were constructed before the Revolutionary War and provided the basis to have the entire town added to The National Register of Historic Places in 1987. Residents and visitors alike enjoy walks down Shepherdstown's German Street to visit the businesses, restaurants and shops that continue to operate from these historic buildings.
But while history is a huge part of Shepherdstown's character and ambiance, the town continues to be a vibrant place for homebuyers. Shepherd University gives Shepherdstown residents an inspirational pivot point for the arts and academia as many artists, theatre groups and musicians associated with the institution routinely host performances throughout the year in an array of establishments. Shepherdstown residents also enjoy a variety of social events that include Shepherdstown Music and Dance's monthly contra dances, the Contemporary American Theater Festival, and a plethora of other holiday parades, arts festivals and celebrations. The Shepherdstown Farmers Market held every Sunday beginning in spring brings out families, friends and neighbors to socialize and to buy the best in local produce, meats, deserts and more.
Shepherdstown's location in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle means residents have plenty of ways to experience the great outdoors. The Potomac River is perfect for fishing and hiking and biking trails are located along the river. The more adventurous among us have access to river rafting excursions in Harpers Ferry and snow skiing in nearby resorts. Golfers delight at the many incredible courses located throughout the area, too. For big city attractions, Shepherdstown residents can easily travel to Washington, D.C. or Baltimore. With these cities only an hour-and-a-half drive away, day trips and weekend getaways are easy to arrange when you buy a home in Shepherdstown.
