Historic Charles Town

The City of Charles Town is the County seat of Jefferson County WV and is home to over 5,000 residents.  The City was originally chartered in 1786 by the State of Virginia and named for Charles Washington, brother of the first president.

Charles Town was the scene of the trial and execution of John Brown, the famous abolitionist whose raid on nearby Harpers Ferry sparked the Civil War.  Two of the three treason trials ever held in the United States were conducted at the courthouse located here.
