About the Association

The Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association Inc. (SBPA) is a non-profit organization, dedicated to preserving the site of the noted Civil War battle at Shepherdstown, West Virginia.

We recruit volunteers to assist in the management and / or improvement of battlefield properties including the Riverside Park, Cement Mill ruins and the Osbourn Farm (Far Away Farm).

The Association promotes education about and knowledge of the Battle through tours, activities, and other programs (Streetfest, lectures, artifact displays).

We ensure the opinions and concerns of neighbors of the battlefield, local community members, Shepherdstown residents, and Jefferson County are represented in discussions about Battlefield management and preservation.

SBPA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
