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 Historic Farnsworth House for "The Farnsworth Haunted Experience!" Included in your ticket price, you will receive a 15% off voucher for Sweney's Tavern (excludes alcohol), and our five-course Civil War Feast in the Meade and Lee Dining Rooms at 7:00pm. Everyone will receive our pickled watermelon rinds, house made peanut soup, a side salad served with our house Amish Sweet & Sour Dressing, Jennie Wade Bread and Spoon Bread served with apple and whipped butter, apple pie for dessert, along with your choice between our house specialty Game Pie, Herb Chicken, or Vegetable Lasagna. During dinner, a Civil War Soldier, in full battle dress, will talk about his uniform, weapons, daily life, and the history of the Farnsworth House. After dinner, from 9pm-2am, with our ghost hunting equipment at your disposal, you will get to hunt in the garret (attic), the cellar, and the throughout the Farnsworth House to uncover some of the spirits that are still here with one of our very knowledgeable paranormal investigators. This is going to be an amazing night, so whether you are staying here with us for a few days, or just passing through town, you won't want to miss this event!
