  • Wonderful representation of the civilian perspective of the war. Thoroughly enjoyed the home and exhibits. Loved the curators---so amazingly knowledgeable and passionate. Often, I believe we tend to forget how the lives of the civilians and the town itself was affected by the war for decades to follow.
  • While walking in Gettysburg today, we came upon the Rupp House History Center and decided to go in. Very glad we did! The house had a lot of information and had a video that you could view in the sitting area. The best part was the woman who was in the hallway when we entered dressed in period clothing. She was very knowledgeable about the house and the events that took place in Gettysburg July 1863. We really enjoyed listening to her narrative! Well worth the stop if you are in Gettysburg.
  • Very knowledgeable staff. Learning history and having fun
  • Best part of our visit to Gettysburg! The staff were charming and fun and the house is pretty interesting. So glad this place is there, free and open to the public. Only open three days a week, and I'm glad they were open while we were in town.
  • Nice place - Friends of Gettysburg is a great organization!
