A FREE, guided, hour-plus tour of the Dobbin House, the oldest house in Gettysburg and built in the same year that the United States of America was founded – 1776! This popular and highly rated presentation highlights the house built by the Rev. Alexander Dobbin. His stone home spans three centuries of American history, from the Revolutionary War, through the Civil War, through the Wars of the 20th Century, to today. Interpreters use artifacts, some dating to the 18th century, to evoke the lifestyle of the colonists on the frontier of early America.
