Living historian James Hayney will have you believing you are seeing the real Abraham Lincoln. Relive the emotion and passion of the 1860s when we recreate Lincoln’s November 1863 ride on the Northern Central Railway. President Lincoln traveled these rails on his way to Gettysburg to present the Gettysburg Address, and two years later his funeral car used the same line. Learn more about these trips and the history of the Gettysburg Address and listen to Mr. Hayney recite President Lincoln’s famous speech.

Veterans and active-duty military ride free! Call us at 717-942-2370 at least three days in advance to reserve your ticket. Please have a valid ID.
