Holiday A Civil War Christmas at the Shriver House Experience a Candlelight Christmas Tour of the Shriver House Museum You are cordially invited to take a candlelight tour of the Shriver House Museum decorated for an 1860’s Christmas, while hearing the story of the Shriver family and how the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War changed their lives forever. Christmas tours take place from November 28th through December 19th. Private tours for groups of ten or more are welcome anytime throughout the holiday season; reservations are required. Shriver House Museum
309 Baltimore Street
Gettysburg, PA 17325
 
717-337-2800 Take a step back in time to discover how Christmas was celebrated in the mid-1800s. Enter the 19th century home of George, Hettie, Sadie (7), and Mollie (5) Shriver as they prepare for the upcoming Christmas holidays. See the candle-ladenChristmas tree in its place of honor on the parlor table as a fire roars in the fireplace of the handsome room decorated with hand-made holiday greenery. After hanging stockings on the mantle, the girls set out milk and cookies in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus on that magical night. While soldiers faced the perils of the Civil War, Christmas offered a few moments of cheer that would help brighten the lives of those at home. Learn how families celebrated the holidays while fathers, sons, and husbands were separated from loved ones during this tragic time in American history.
