August Walking Tours of McAllister’s Mill
Published August 22, 2013
Recognized by the National Park Service as part of the UGRR Network to Freedom, McAllister’s Mill on Rock Creek was an important stop on the Underground Railroad. It’s actually pretty amazing to think how much history — personal and political — can still be experienced here in Gettysburg, especially on this little known part of the battlefield.
Tours of the McAllister’s Mill site on Rock Creek are walks over gentle terrain, but sneakers are still a good idea. Free parking is available at the south end of the Mulligan MacDuffer Adventure Golf parking lot at 1360 Baltimore Pike.
The tour season ends on August 31, so you only have this Saturday and next to get this up-close and intimate look at one of the stops along the famed Underground Railroad.
Look for the blue Pennsylvania Historic Marker at the end of the parking lot.
