The story that goes with this house is remarkable. As only one of I believe 2 civilians to be killed during the fighting in Gettysburg it’s a must see while you are there.

Thanks for the great review. Hope you are able to come back and take the history tour during the day as the ghost tour is more paranormal than history.

Service animals are permitted. However, the house is very small and has stairs. A stroller would not be feasible (very narrow).
