Not to mention the fact that Harper's Ferry sticks out into a river that, on the north is Maryland and the south is Virginia -- both Southern states, by definition.

But now we're nit-picking and opening up that tired old can of worms again ... so never mind (though I agree with you).

Okay I suppose that in a historical context Harper's Ferry is "the south". But given it's proximity to the BosWash corridor, the OP might as well stick with Vermont.

St. Francisville is pretty and in a good setting with the Tunica waterfall nearby.
Gonzales is not, it's just a suburb.
