The David Wills House in downtown Gettysburg celebrated its grand opening February 12, 2009, offering visitors a world-class museum experience that tells the story of President Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address. David Wills' home was not just the center of Gettysburg--it was the center of the immense clean-up process after the Battle of Gettysburg and where President Lincoln put the finishing touches on the Gettysburg Address. The speech transformed Gettysburg's community from a place of devastation to the symbol of our nation's new birth of freedom.
The Gettysburg Foundation operates the museum as an official partner with Gettysburg National Military Park. The property is on the National Register of Historic Places.
