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.
Join us here at the Farnsworth House and take our ‘In Their Shoes’ tour for FREE! Just show your school ID to take part in this interactive learning experience. Perfect for people of all ages!
Our ‘In Their Shoes’ program is a 90-minute interactive history presentation that puts you into the mindset of a soldier. Everyone receives their own wooden rifle, haversack, hat and soldier identity. Journey to the attic of the Farnsworth House, and see the original bullet holes on the home! After that, count off by twos and march in formation around our 360 degree Civil War Camp. See a working waterwheel, pig pen, blacksmith shop, wagons, tents and so much more! This truly is a once in a lifetime experience!
We hope to see you there!
