the house where the only civilian was killed during the battle, it was interesting to see the bullet holes. I think it was slightly overpriced to tour this house, it is very small.

Nice gift shop with period gifts, reasonably priced. Staff are friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of many hotels and restaurants. The Jennie Wade House is steeped in history and the staff are only too kind to give you the history. The gift shop adjoins the house. Situated next to The 1863 Hotel.

This house has a really interesting history. Jennie Wade was the only civilian casualty of the civil war and her story is touching. The house is just like it was back then.

There is a allure to the Jennie Wade house and story of her unfortunate death but there is so much more to see in Gettysburg than this museum. It's nice but spend time walking around Culp's Hill and think about the Wesley Culp who was fighting for the Confederacy and dies on his own family farmland. Or explore the town... More

Jennie Wade House was very informative and the story behind it was very interesting. You learn a different aspect of the battle that is from the locals viewpoint. Very interesting.

Visited Jennie Wade house after a Ghost Walk the previous night interested the kids in Jennie Wade. Kids got a good tour and information about Jennie Wade and the citizens of Gettysburg during the battle.
