The 1898 Victorian mansion, The Brickhouse Inn, which has eight rooms, and is adjacent to the 1830 historic Welty House, holding six rooms, are in the heart of Gettysburg’s downtown historic district. The Brickhouse Inn and Welty House sit perfectly within easy walking distance of most shops and restaurants. The Welty House was constructed in the 1830s by Solomon Welty, who was born in 1815 into a family of Swedish immigrants. The Welty House was the site of intense fighting during the Battle of Gettysburg and was used as a sharpshooter position for Confederate forces. It still bears scars from the battle, which one can see and touch. Following the battle, the Welty House property served as a temporary burial ground for 36 Union and confederate soldiers. The house later witnessed President Abraham Lincoln and his procession down Baltimore Street to deliver the Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863.
