Lincoln’s presence is felt all around Gettysburg. Although his visit to Gettysburg was short, it will never be forgotten. Plan your Gettysburg visit with all things Lincoln!

Begin your day with a hearty breakfast at One Lincoln Food & Spirits located on Lincoln Square. You can guess who both the restaurant and Square were named after. One Lincoln also offers great lunch and dinner menus.

Once you’re fueled up, get ready for a walking tour with the Gettysburg Licensed Town Historians. They offer a special tour, President Abraham Lincoln’s Visit – Gettysburg Address, in which you'll cover President Lincoln’s 25-hours in Gettysburg. Some of the places you will visit along the tour include the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station, the David Wills House, the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church and Soldiers’ National Cemetery – all places visited by Lincoln when he was in town. We recommend going back to the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station where Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg, and to the David Wills House where he stayed the night. Both historic buildings have fascinating museum displays inside.

Stop for lunch at one of our amazing restaurants before heading to another museum with Lincoln influences, Lincoln Train Museum. In this eclectic museum you’ll find model trains, iconic memorabilia taking you on a walk through American history, activities for kids and a full size Lincoln Funeral Car on its way from Washington, DC to Springfield, Illinois. The spirit of Lincoln will surround you as you immerse yourself in presidential history.
