Bills in Congress Could Preserve Sites at Historic Harpers Ferry
Pew video tells the national park’s story and why a Civil War-era house needs to be restored

Congress can restore national treasures such as the Lockwood House if it votes to fix our parks. Two measures have attracted strong bipartisan support: the Restore Our Parks Act (S. 3172) in the Senate and the Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act (H.R. 6510) in the House. Both would provide up to $6.5 billion over five years to address priority park repairs, more than half of the $11.6 billion in deferred maintenance at National Park Service sites. Providing funds for maintenance now would also keep repairs from becoming worse and more costly.
