Summer School, the Gettysburg Way

Gettysburg is known for its rich Civil War history and important moments in the formation of United States. However, did you know that Gettysburg is also home to some very interesting bits of other types of history? Secret fraternities, unsolved mysteries, and the first recorded use of the temporary insanity plea are just a few of the interesting tidbits of historical information you can learn on one of the many tours available this summer by the Gettysburg Licensed Town Historians. Some of our favorite tours include:

Majestic Theatre

The Majestic Theatre is a Gettysburg staple. Located directly next to the hotel, this theater has something for everyone this summer – classic movies, live music, and more. Some highlights coming to the stage in the coming weeks include:
