The Farmhouse was General Merritt's Headquarters during the cavalry battle here on the South Cavalry field. The Historic Barn Venue was a Civil War Field Hospital. The home belonged to abolitionists Anna and Cornelius Houghtelin, Vice-President of Gettysburg's Anti-Slavery Society in 1835. The Solarium contains a fireplace designed by Victorian architect Frank Furness, who was a cavalry soldier with Rush's Lancers, a distinguished unit that fought on this property. The infamous artillerist Lt. Robert James dropped an engraved silver spoon on the grounds. President Eisenhower walked the property.
