With but few minor changes and repairs, the Jennie Wade House Museum remains much as Jennie must have known it more than 150 years ago. Authentically furnished from cellar to attic, the museum is not only a shrine to a heroic martyr but has become a museum of life and living during the American Civil War.
The Jennie Wade Gift Shop features unique gifts and collectibles as well as Jennie Wade souvenirs.
Value Plan available. Visit Packages for details.
