The Historic Shepherdstown Museum opens for 2023 with a new exhibit featuring maps of Shepherdstown and Jefferson County, giving visitors a glimpse into the geography of the past (and how much of it is still recognizable today). The 1890 map by local architect S. P. Humrickhouse shown above is an example of what visitors can see in the extensive collection.
