I would think it was close to where John Browns Fort or firehouse sets today. But don't know what Harpers Ferry looked like in 1950'sI was stationed at the Great Lakes Naval base for 11 months in 1956-1957, I came home twice during that time and each time I rode on a B&O train. The train arrived in Harpers Ferry both times barely after daybreak and I remember looking down on a river and some old looking buildings. I've often wondered since those times if I was looking at where the old arsenal stood.
