Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Best known as the house where President Abraham Lincoln stayed prior to delivering the Gettysburg Address, the home of attorney David Wills also served as a center for compassion and inspiration in the days and months following the Battle of Gettysburg.
Inside, Wills managed the immense task of providing proper burials for the fallen soldiers and began planning for the national cemetery. On the eve of the cemetery dedication, Lincoln spent the night in the home while adding the finishing touches to his inspirational address. With historic rooms restored to their 1863 appearance, today’s David Wills House features a seven-gallery interactive museum relating the story of Wills, Lincoln’s visit and the Gettysburg Address.
