Adams County is home to many artists. Many of these artists capture the history of the Battle, the 1863 civilians, the soldiers and the famous battle sites. This is the story of three of those artists: Wendy Allen, Dale Gallon and Charles Joyce. There is a common passion for their work, the history and connecting the people of today with the stories of our past. We invite you to listen to their story and on your next visit, stop by their galleries or one of the many shops, like Gallery 30, where you can find their work. Maybe art will draw you back in time.
