Sunday Special Programming

Each Sunday throughout the summer season, Historic Gettysburg-Adams County (HGAC) will be on-site. HGAC interprets the design, construction and use of the stunning expression of an iconic, vernacular architectural form—the Pennsylvania Bank Barn. Representatives of HGAC discuss the George Spangler Farm’s restoration in the past decade—from a dilapidated structure in danger of collapse to a visage of its original glory—that revived this important, tangible component of American history.

Admission to the historic site is included with the purchase of a Film, Cyclorama & Museum Experience ticket at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center. Visitors also have the option to purchase single shuttle tickets for admission to the George Spangler Farm & Field Hospital. Friends of Gettysburg members receive complimentary admission and shuttle tickets to the site during summer season weekends.

Shuttles depart the Museum & Visitor Center Friday through Sunday every 20 minutes starting at 10 a.m. with the last shuttle departing the Museum & Visitor Center at 1:40 p.m. The last returning shuttle to the Museum & Visitor Center departs the George Spangler Farm & Field Hospital at 3:20 p.m. For shuttle tickets, visit or call 877-874-2478.
