This was a very cool. You got to tour the home upstairs and down. You have a tour guide leading the way and telling you the sad story.

The Jennie Wade story resonates with every Battlefield visitor. The House docents know their subject, answer questions well and the House is filled with Wade items like the blood-stained floor board and door with bullet hole. Visitors often ask where the sniper who killed Jennie was located. Answer: probably the attic of the Farnsworth House which you will find on... More

For $8.00 you are granted a tour of the building, along with a guide, who retells the sad story of Jennie Wade during the Battle of Gettysburg. It lasted about a half-hour and was worth every penny. The building itself is in fantastic shape, so you can tell the staff really care about it's overall appearance and condition. The tour... More

Very interesting building and story. Not to be missed. it is a great visual, especially if there are kids. You actually see how the family lived and where the bullet holes hit the home.

We toured the Jennie Wade House the day after Halloween and we LOVED IT! Our tour guide (male - early 20's) was AMAZING! he was so informative and we learned so much! This house is so historic and truly a once in a lifetime experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Being in the room where Jennie Wade died was humbling. I can't begin to imagine the horrific time the citizens of Gettysburg had to deal with during the battle and long beyond.

This is worth the tour especially at night! Although sad, it's a nice piece of history and deserves a look. The gift shop isn't that impressive as it just sells nick-nacks, but the staff is quite friendly and love telling ghost stories!
