Stay Steps Away From Where President Lincoln Gave The Gettysburg Address
The Gettysburg Hotel, Est. 1797 has a tradition of hospitality that dates to 1797, when James Scott first opened his tavern. In the summer of 1863, the hotel played witness to one of the seminal events in American history during a pivotal three-day Civil War battle. President Lincoln honed the immortal words of his Gettysburg Address at the Wills House, just steps away from the hotel. Nearly a century later, the hotel served as President Dwight Eisenhower’s national operations center. After a careful and detailed restoration, the historic Gettysburg Hotel once again welcomes guests to share in its rich legacy.
The hotel’s location and proximity to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Harrisburg and Hershey make it an ideal spot for traveling to a variety of historic sites and places of interest.
