Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
From historic taverns to ethnic cuisine, farm-to-table dining to unique edibles, the tastes of Gettysburg are sure to please every palate.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Three historic homes on the hill welcome you for a holiday visit. Tour each home decorated for the season in preference to the era it was built. Stroll from house to house on beautiful Seminary Ridge. Schmucker House, home of Samuel Simon Schmucker, founder of the Lutheran Seminary and Gettysburg College. The house was hit by artillery shells during the first day of battle in the Civil War and was used as a field hospital. Singmaster House was originally faculty housing, first occupied by the Reverend J.A. Singmaster, D.D. It became a conference center in 1982. Lewars House is the residence of the Seminary President. Previously owned by the family of Dr. J.A. Singmaster and resided in by Elsie Lewars Singmaster, daughter of Dr. Singmaster and well-known authoress.
Proceeds will benefit historic preservation on the seminary campus.
