Can't help with haunted B&Bs in Gettysburg, but if you want to go farther afield, a friend has told me about a haunted B&B 20 miles from Gettysburg, in New Windsor, Maryland.

It's called Atlee House. A paranormal investigator recently set up infrared cameras and told them that it is haunted by a 7 year old girl named Caroline and a Confederate soldier who died in the house, and that there's an unmarked slave burial ground under the tennis court. My friend says that the owners are nice and make great breakfasts. www.atleehousebb.com

Travel Tips for Gettysburg

Find a place to park and enjoy...

by VBlest

Find a place to park and enjoy time to reflect A park ranger was giving a talk and one really smart tourist said 'OH YEAH! YOU SAID THERE WAS A BATTLE HERE,BUT YOU ARE A BIG LIAR BECAUSE THERE ARE NO BULLET HOLES ON ANY OF THE MONUMENTS' then this genius smiled smugly while the park ranger tried to conceal his disgust. Sadly this tourist had children...

Historic Buildings

by Wanderer001

A good number of historic buildings in town and scattered around the battle field are private residential homes. Just because there is a plaque or marker near or on the home does not give visitors permission to go take a look around. Treat these homes just as you would your neighbors house.

Gettysburg National Cemetery Annex

by AlbuqRay

You can see the Steinwehr Gate into the Gettysburg National Cemetery Annex from the porch of the Gettystown Inn B&B. Be aware that that gate is closed at dusk. The Annex opened in 1967 after the main cemetery reached capacity. The "Friend to Friend" Memorial is located in the Annex. It commemorates the estimated 15,000 Free Masons that fought on both sides at Gettysburg. It depicts wounded Confederate GEN Lewis A. Armistead placing his pocket watch in the hand of Union CPT Henry H. Bingham with instructions to deliver it back home to his family. The Soldiers National Monument and the New York State Monument are just up the hill.

American Civil War Museum

by AlbuqRay

If you continue walking southwest on Steinwehr Avenue (Emmitsburg Road, US-15), past the Soldiers' National Cemetery Annex, then a couple of blocks past Washington Street (Taneytown Road, MD-134), you will reach the American Civil War Museum at 297 Steinwehr Avenue. I believe it used to be called the wax museum. Their self-guided tour presents the history of the Civil War era and Battle of Gettysburg using life-sized dioramas. There is also a re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg in the digitally enhanced Battle Room exhibit, followed by an animated version of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

Longstreet Observation Tower and Eisenhower Farm

by AlbuqRay

South of the Pitzer Woods Stop #6 on the self-guided auto tour, there is an observation tower named after GEN Longstreet. It is one of the last three remaining U. S. War Department-era observation towers and offers the visitor a panoramic view of the battlefield. Originally, there were five towers constructed on the battlefield but this is the only one built on West Confederate Avenue. From the observation deck, one can appreciate the distance that Longstreet's Confederates had to cross to reach the Union positions at Little Round Top, the Wheatfield and in the Peach Orchard. See also a videoclip.

The tower was the last major structure to be placed on West Confederate Avenue, which was also laid out and paved by the U. S. War Department at the turn of the century. William Robbins, a Confederate veteran of the battle and one of the first battlefield commissioners, promoted the avenue so that Confederate artillery and infantry positions could be marked. Robbins worked with original reports and documents while relying on eyewitness testimony from visiting veterans to compose the tablets. This portion of West Confederate between Millerstown Road and the Emmitsburg Road is lined with numerous Confederate battery positions as well as several state memorials and brigade markers.

The tower also overlooks the farm that is today Eisenhower National Historic Site, the retirement home of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The farm buildings used by GEN Longstreet as a temporary headquarters stood on the Eisenhower property, but they no longer exist. I did a pass on climbing all those stairs but it would have been a great view. The nearby marker says Dwight D. Eisenhower was General of the Army and the 34th President of the United States. He loved history and bought the 189-acre farm in 1950. After his election in 1952, the farm became his retreat and he even met world leaders informally there. He retired to the farm in 1961 and lived there until his death in 1969. First Lady Mamie lived there until her death in 1979. Since 1980, the farm has been managed by the National Park Service. Admission to the farm is by shuttle bus only. The buses depart regularly from the Museum and Visitors' Center.
