Dine in Gettysburg PA's Oldest, Most Historic Home "...Beautifully and Authentically Restored" and open to the public as a colonial restaurant.
Four Score and Seven years before the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, (1776), Reverend Alexander Dobbin built a house to begin a new life in America for himself and his family. Today his home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a colonial restaurant where candlelit elegance, superior food in abundance, and gracious service bring back the sights, sounds and tastes of two centuries ago. It consistently wins Mobil Guide's highest area rating.
