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.
Created by a history-minded couple who loves to travel and shop, our store offers a unique experience that will appeal to the collector and the visitor alike. The concept behind Artifact at 777 grew from the belief that every item available for purchase should have a story – a connection to our past and those who came before us.
Visitors can browse through our rotating selection of Civil War artifacts, each identified by the specific location where it was found or the collection that it came from. Sort through relics found in Gettysburg, Antietam and a host of other sites and battlefields, each with their own certificate of identification. Examine pottery fragments and artifacts from ancient sites during you visit or, perhaps, take home a pendant that was originally worn centuries ago by a person who lived in Medieval Europe.
If unadorned artifacts are not your cup of tea, you will enjoy our selection of modern handcrafted jewelry with a historical touch. Utilizing early designs or materials such as Roman glass or Egyptian beads, each and every piece offers its own story and link to days long past. Jewelry featuring meteorites and dinosaur bones are also popular items. Original art photographs with historical themes (from Gettysburg and beyond), historical prints created by Maryland artist Nick Nickens, and a variety of gifts and other items are also available.
Family-friendly, educational and housing a diverse and interesting selection of items for purchase, Artifact at 777 should not be missed!
