The Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station™ is currently closed and undergoing renovations to reopen in 2022. An all-new interactive virtual reality experience is coming in spring 2022.
Invited to say “a few appropriate remarks” at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, President Abraham Lincoln arrived at the Gettysburg station the evening before delivering the Gettysburg Address.
Following the Battle of Gettysburg, the station served as a field hospital and a departure point for thousands of soldiers.
In Nov. 1863, enthusiastic crowds gathered outside the depot hoping to catch a glimpse of the president as he arrived in Gettysburg.
Coming in 2022: You will be able to step onto the platform and into history as yet another distinguished guest to this historic station.
