I had heard the Jenny Wade story before but seeing the home and having a great tour guide really brought it all to life.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The story of Jenny Wade is both interesting and sad. The tour is a little boring. I took both the day tour and the night tour. Neither one was scary.

“Civil War History”

Like that it is authentic time period structure with some of the original items from when Virginia was there. Bullet holes and all.

“Better than I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a very well presented tour of the home in which the only civilian was killed during the Battle of Gettysburg. The guide gave an excellent description of the events surrounding the death of Jennie Wade.
