|Virginia artist and author Mary Montague Sikes shows landmark Harpers Ferry, WV hostelry, Hilltop House, in pastels, photographs and descriptive text. Sikes details the design conception, construction and numerous renovations including the latest proposal which is on hold at this date, and may not proceed. The panoramic beauty of the setting combined with its location as a key role many historical events have attracted guests ranging from honeymooners to world leaders. Day-trips to the Civil War Battlegrounds of Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Manassas add to the popularity of the location. Hilltop House is a selection from the Snapshot in Time series, an updated re-purposing of the installments in Sikes' classic "HOTELS TO REMEMBER".
