Free Dobbin House Tours

Enjoy a FREE, guided, hour-plus tour of the oldest, most historic house in Gettysburg, the Dobbin House. This popular and highly-rated presentation highlights the house built in 1776 by the Reverand Alexander Dobbin. His stone home spans three centuries of American history, from the Revolutionary War through the Civil War and beyond. 

View all the decorated rooms while interacting with period antiques to understand how the home's occupants lived during the 18th and 19th centuries. Savor a combination of history and entertainment. See how the Dobbin family planned to defend themselves from Indian attacks. Hear what the Zeigler family experienced while living in the Dobbin House during the Battle of Gettysburg. Peek in the kitchen of the current restaurant.
This free once-daily (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) tour begins at 10 am and meets in the Dobbin House Country Curiosity Store. Tours are on a first come basis and space is limited. Please note that the tour includes going up and down stairs.
