My husband and I were thoroughly mesmerized with Gettysburg, and this was one of the free stops! WOW! Not only did President Lincoln walk through the same doorway as we did, but so did Presidents T. Roosevelt and FDR. Although smaller, there's a lot to...More

Train station Abraham Lincoln came to when he visited Gettysburg during the Civil War. It was just stuff to read inside. There was no show, etc. Very small inside and a tiny gift area. Pretty boring. Took a few pictures and left. Mostly I went...More

Very knowledgeable staff discuss the roll of this railroad station, and railroads, both during and after the Civil War. Also, President Lincoln's journey to Gettysburg via railroad (Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863) is highlighted. This attraction is well worth at least a 30-60 minute...More

There isn't a whole lot to see here but it's free so worth stopping in. The station is well-maintained and has informative exhibits.

This is a great visual of the original train station Abe Lincoln arrived at to deliver the Gettysburg Address. Well preserved and interesting appearance at night. Only a few minutes to see. The Lincoln Diner is across the street.

This museum is free (always a plus) but small and self guided. The information posted inside the museum is not really anything different than what you will hear on most other tours in Gettysburg (just very general information about the war). The building itself was...More
