Welcome to the Gaslight Inn
An in-town oasis, The Gaslight Inn is conveniently located just one block from Lincoln Square, the center of Gettysburg, PA and one block from East Confederate Avenue, the Culps Hill area of the Battlefield.
150 Years of HistoryThe Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War. For three hot days in July 1863, our small Pennsylvania town was the scene of hard-fought battles, esteemed bravery and the bloodshed of 51,000 men. With a much needed Union victory, many historians agree that it was on these hallowed grounds that our nation was saved, and deem the Battle of Gettysburg as the defining moment that changed the direction of the war and the morale of the nation.
After nearly 150 years, what happened in Gettysburg is not forgotten. This is a monumental year that will bring to life many historical reenactments, as well as events and activities that portray what life was like those few days in 1863. We invite you to visit and walk in the footsteps of history.
