Dine in Gettysburg PA’s Oldest, Most Historic Home “…Beautifully and Authentically Restored” and open to the public as a colonial restaurant.

Four Score and Seven years before the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, (1776), Reverend Alexander Dobbin built a house to begin a new life in America for himself and his family. Today his home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a colonial restaurant where candlelit elegance, superior food in abundance, and gracious service bring back the sights, sounds and tastes of two centuries ago. It consistently wins Mobil Guide’s highest area rating. The friendly hospitality of the Dobbin House extends to the Springhouse Tavern, Gettystown Bed and Breakfast, Country Curiosity Store, Abigail Adams Ballroom, in-house bakery and secret “underground railroad” slave hideout.


A most unique eating and drinking alehouse amidst three natural springs and two glowing fireplaces. This cozy and romantic colonial tavern features your favorite spirits, generous dinner platters, fresh deli sandwiches and salads, homemade soups and tasty desserts. Food served anytime, day or night. Open Daily from 11:30 AM. No reservations.
