Preserving the Past

Adams County, known around the world for the American Civil War and President Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address, is known locally as a family community built on dedication, respect of the land, fresh air and relationships. We work hard and we play hard. We invite strangers into our community and our homes and we make them friends. The stories of Adams County are what make our destination special, we hope that you will discover people you wish to meet and places you just can't wait to see... 

This is the story of Adams County which is rich with history. Some of our history has formed our country like that of the battle of Gettysburg, other moments have simply formed our county such as the construction of our school houses and mills. All of our history matters, and we preserve it for future generations. Restoration and preservation are what we do so that we can pass on our stories.
