The Eye of the Storm Walking Tour

Located at the Southern edge of Gettysburg, and caught in the midst of the violent sharpshooter action on July 2nd and 3rd, 1863, the Farnsworth House was truly in the eye of the storm. Join us as we walk the hallowed ground of South Baltimore Street and Cemetery Hill, in a discussion one of the lesser known actions of the battle. Based on the research of author and historian Timothy H. Smith, the tour is unique blend of military accounts, civilian stories and town history.

The Walking tours will be offered every Sunday at 10:30am from the Farnsworth House in Gettysburg. The cost is $10 a person. Group sizes are limited. Tickets can be purchased at guest services in the log cabin building, or by calling 717-334-8838. The tour lasts an hour and a half and covers about a mile.
