The stately Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station stands tall over downtown Gettysburg to tell the stories of a prosperous town ravaged by war and raised by the determination of its citizens. 

Built in 1859 to serve as the western terminus of the Gettysburg Railroad line to Hanover, Pennsylvania; the station served as a field hospital, a departure point for thousands of soldiers, and a place of greeting for President Lincoln when he came to deliver his Gettysburg Address.
