  • There is no admission to visit this place, so be sure to stop by. There are lots of interesting things to learn and see here. There is a place to leave a donation if you enjoy your visit. They have interactive things for kids to do, so be sure to ask but they should tell you about it when you enter. The staff was nice and helpful. They also have a gift shop and people in costume.
  • Very informative attendant. Worth the time to see an hear the story of this family during the Civil War
  • Very interesting. The guide is wonderful very informative
  • Went with a group of Boy Scouts. There is a lot of great history here. There are different levels of activities that have you search around the house for answers to clues. After you complete the challenge there are prizes for completion. The exhibits in this house are very well done and do a great job teaching about the properties use and history.
  • Great story and personal interaction. And for Free!

Where to stay in Gettysburg

Though Gettysburg offers plenty of lodging options to suit every visitor's budget, remember that you must reserve your room at least a few months ahead of time if you plan to attend the popular battle reenactments. Many inns in the heart of town offer both a sense of history and many modern amenities, including exercise facilities and both indoor and outdoor pools. You can also choose to stay at a comfortable hotel just northwest of the area's historical battlefield complex, located only minutes from downtown.
