This is a great little free museum of the old Gettysburg railroad station. It's worth an hour of your time, as the railroad plays an important part in "why Gettysburg"

The train station was an interesting self guided tour. The station greeted Lincoln on his trip to Gettysburg and the restoration of the station was well-done. Worth a stop.

Saw this years ago before it was restored and was pretty depressed to see such a piece of history deteriorated. Then they did a great job of restoring it. Worth seeing, good piece of history.....

Be sure to get your Passport Stamp while here. This is not a large place so you can learn a lot in a short time. Just around the corner from David Wills House.

This museum is small but helps visitors visualize Lincoln's visit to Gettysburg, as it was here that his train stopped, and he walked up the street to the David Wills house.

Bonnie, who works for the National Park Service, recommended the Railroad Station as well as David Wills house. They were both worth the visit.
