Interesting alternative to the mass of ghost tours. Presentations are made by members of each church so the quality can vary wildly, but all were of historical relavance and very much more substance than the ghost tours.

We enjoyed all of the tours we have taken in Gettysburg. The historic church tour was however by far the most enjoyable! The volunteers providing the tour were very knowledgeable & passionate about the local history.

An inexpensive tour, only offered on Wednesday evenings. It is done by volunteers. Our leader was also a Licensed Battlefield Guide, so he was quite knowledgeable. You walk to four churches and at each church parishoners take over and tell you the history of their church's involvement in and after the battle of Gettysburg. It was very well done and informative. Plus, you get to see the inside of some historic sanctuaries.

This was such a lovely experience our first evening in Gettysburg. I had run across the website for Historic Church Tours and thought it sounded interesting. The walking tours are in the evening (only on Wednesdays) and are about a half mile in distance. Each of their two tours covers 4 different churches that were significant in some way during or after the Civil War. Volunteers from each of the churches act as guides and the presentation at each church is slightly different (each lasting about 15 minutes). We learned such interesting things and really enjoyed talking to all the guides. I highly recommend this tour for people of all ages. We had two 20-somethings and a 12-year-old with us, and they all enjoyed it. At only $5 each this was definitely a bargain.
