Welcome to the Gaslight Inn

The Gaslight Inn, a Gettysburg bed and breakfast, provides uncommon attention to details - arranging a private tour guide, helping you select a restaurant for dinner, making certain your wine is chilled, or making arrangements for a carriage ride through the Battlefield.

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.

The Most Famous Small Town in America

The 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. We invite you to visit and walk in the footsteps of history.

Gettysburg Remains Open Through Government Shutdown

January 2019

Even though a partial government shutdown went into effect at midnight between Dec. 21 and Dec. 22, it shouldn’t deter visitors from coming to Gettysburg. There are still plenty of attractions, including museums and tours, that will operate through the shutdown. Most roads on the Gettysburg battlefield remain open operating under Gettysburg National Military Park’s (GNMP) winter schedule of 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Because of this, battlefield tours, including bus tours, with Licensed Battlefield Guides will continue to operate using accessible roads.The GNMP Museum and Visitor Center is not owned by the National Park Service, but rather the Gettysburg Foundation, so it will remain open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. However, all service programs, such as the Winter Lecture Series, have been canceled for the remainder of the shutdown.The Eisenhower National Historic Site, the David Wills House and Soldiers’ National Cemetery are closed. The Historic Lincoln Train Station in Downtown Gettysburg is also closed following the normal winter schedule, not because of the shutdown.Destination Gettysburg is still encouraging visitors to come to Gettysburg because there is still plenty to do despite the government shutdown. Gettysburg’s many museums are still open for business, as well as shops, tasting rooms and restaurants throughout Adams County that visitors can enjoy. Events that are not through the National Park Service are still happening.For a full list of events and information, visit www.destinationgettysburg.com.
