The Historic Gettysburg Hotel
One Lincoln Square, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania 17325 (Map It!)
The Gettysburg Hotel is located in the heart of historic downtown Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and is walking distance to the battlefield, attractions, shops and restaurants. The hotel offers superior service in a charming and ideal setting, rich in history and hospitable ambiance.
The Historic Gettysburg Hotel has a tradition of hospitality that dates back 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 under the initiative of the Gettysburg College, the Historic Gettysburg Hotel once again welcomes guests to share in its rich legacy.
