It was really nice to walk through and see such a preserved piece of history. It was clear the tour guide loved her job and took pride in it.

My family and I enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was infomative and patient. Learned a lot about Jennie Wade and her family. The tour was about 45 minutes, our children did get restless (7 and 3). But overall great experience!

This was an excellent tour. My family enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Star, was excellent. She answered questions and knew a great deal about the people of Gettysburg! This is a fascinating story!

This is a nice little place to go and check out. We went at night and they did a recreation of the shooting of Jennie Wade and a ghost tour. It was fun and very informative. The house is right downtown and it's worth stopping to see it. I recommend doing the midnight tour if you can!

This was an interesting story, & the house was well-preserved. I felt the tour was a bit long at an hour for such a small space, & would like to see a shorter tour for a bit less money, but it was OK. Convenient location right in town with plenty of parking. Our kids enjoyed it more than our ghost... More

I loved hearing Jennie's story and being able to see the way she lived and the scene of her tragic death. The tour gave us a great visual and set up of the battle and some of the real horrors of the day. I recommend this to anyone visiting Gettysburg!

My daughter and I enjoyed our visit and the story of Jennie Wade. I would have liked to have rated the visit higher but felt our group size was too large. There were so many in our group that seeing all of the things the guide pointed out was difficult, and at times the floors creaked so much that it... More

Brief tour of the home where the only civilian casualty of the Civil War. Now a gift shop. Also shows where the bullet pierced through the door.
