Lincoln's presence is felt all around Gettysburg. Although his visit to Gettysburg was short, it will never be forgotten. Plan your Gettysburg visit with all things Lincoln!

Sign up for a walking tour with the Gettysburg Licensed Town Historians. They offer a special tour, President Abraham Lincoln’s Visit – Gettysburg Address, in which you’ll cover President Lincoln’s 25-hours in Gettysburg. Some of the places you will visit along the tour include the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station, the David Wills House, the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church and Soldiers’ National Cemetery – all places visited by Lincoln when he was in town. We recommend going back to the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station where Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg, and to the David Wills House where he stayed the night. Both historic buildings have fascinating museum displays inside.
