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.
Often refer to affectionately as the "County's attic," visitors and residents alike will discover a wealth of history in the Society's collection. From county records to personal documents, business records to photographs, the collection is available to the public Wednesday through Saturday. Located that the Wolf House on the Lutheran Theological Seminary campus, the collection of materials includes books, manuscript collections, artifacts and research.
The Adams County Historical Society is also home to The Battle of Gettysburg Research Center. The Research Center provides documentation on combat operations during the Gettysburg Campaign, the aftermath of the Battle, Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and battle anniversaries. The society owns many objects as part of the collection which are currently in storage. Portions of the Society's collections are on display at the Gettysburg Heritage Center and Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum.
Special events are also hosted by the Society throughout the year.
