Very interesting little place.

We stopped by because of the Tripadvisor reviews. Small place but well kept & very historical. After you see the Battlefield, be sure to stop in.

Nice little tour that sets the tone for going to the National Cemetary and Gettysburg battlefield. Recommend this stop first as warm up for the main event.

This place was recently restored to its appearance, inside and out, at the time of Lincoln's visit. It is wonderful to see this a truly accurate representation of the house of David Wills. Very authentic furniture and display pieces make this a must see attraction now for the history buff! Will return on my next visit.

Very interesting and helpful staff. Brought home the facts of ALs visit. Great to see the desk where he wrote the Address and the room where he slept.

I was sadly disappointed in the Wills house. To sterile and nothing left in the house is original!! Don't waist your money here!

Last time we came the David Wills house was undergoing a renovation. This time, we made a point to stop here. Well worth the 45 minutes to visit the rooms upstairs as it helped to tie together Lincoln's travel to Gettysburg for the commemoration and his speech at the cemetery.

This house is where A. Lincoln finished his Gettysburg Address and takes a very short few minutes. It's not really a museum per se but certainly a historic site and sits right in the middle of the town so it's almost inevitable that you'll drive right by it.
