Such interesting historical details. Great tour - loved the gift shop too! We also got our ghost tour tickets here and enjoyed our guided tour. We stayed at the 1863 Inn again.

I was not aware that any civilians were killed at Gettysburg. Very informative tour by Starr. Well worth the 45 minutes.

This was well worth the small price for the tour! We had a small tour group - only 4 people - and our guide, Starr, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the story of the house and Jennie Wade.

This was a very interesting story about the only civilian that was killed. Tiny little house in the middle of town along the war path

This and the Shriver House are the two houses in town where you can learn about the civilian experience of the Battle of Gettysburg. Interesting story, well presented. Kids might not like it, though (Jennie was killed here).

I highly recommend this tour! This was hands down the best tour I took in Gettysburg. Star was our guide and she was fantastic. She really made the story come alive and you could tell she has a passion for this. She takes the group (which is not too large) through the house and explains in detail what happened in... More

Interesting contrast to Shriver House. These people were not as wealthy as the Shrivers .You walk through the home to learn the story of Jennie Wade and her family& see how they lived. Interesting to learn how expressions like "hit the hay" originated.
