What's in a name?
You may recognize "Mountain Mama" as a line from John Denver's ode to West Virginia: Take Me Home, Country Roads. What you might not realize is that the references from the song point right here to our little slice of the state. Those Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah River he yearns for both run through about 15 miles of southeastern Jefferson County, from Harpers Ferry to Bluemont, VA and nowhere else in West Virginia. So if you're looking for "Almost Heaven," your search ends here in Harpers Ferry!
