Hi all:

I have seen Mark Twain included in a listing of famous visitors to the Hill
Top House (built in late 1880s) in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
A search of Twain databases and resources - and some newspaper databases -
have not been able to confirm Twain's visiting Harpers Ferry and/or staying
at the Hill Top House.

I do not have the Twain "Day by Day" volumes so I was unable to
cross-reference this resource.

Would anyone have any leads and/or information on a possible visit of Twain
to Harpers Ferry and/or Jefferson County, West Virginia post-1888?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
