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-laden Christmas 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.

Candlelight Christmas tours will begin on Thanksgiving evening, November 27th and continue Saturday evenings through December 20, 2014. For additional information on the Shriver House Museum or to make reservations for a Christmas tour, please call 717-337-2800.

Gettysburg, PA

(717) 334-4100 Jennie was the only civilian to die during the infamous battle when a stray bullet passed through two doors striking her in the back before passing through her heart.

The spirit of Mary Wade has returned to the scene of that tragic death as she painfully tries to make sense of just how it all came to be.

You are invited to join her in her time of need as she retells the tale once again. Follow her as she makes her way through the house, just as the family did in 1863, to the cellar where Jennies’ body was placed as the battle raged on outside.

Mary Wade invites you to be a part of her story. Spirits still lurk in this historic house. Will you join them tonight for this dramatic journey?

This tour begins at the Jennie Wade House Museum Gift Shop at 6pm.

Sat 13 12 - 5; Candlelight tours at 5 & 7pm Holiday 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 1860s Christmas, while hearing the story of the Shriver family and how the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War changed their lives forever. 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-laden Christmas 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.

Candlelight Christmas tours will begin on Thanksgiving evening, November 27th and continue Saturday evenings through December 20, 2014. For additional information on the Shriver House Museum or to make reservations for a Christmas tour, please call 717-337-2800.

Scary Ghost Stories and Tales of the Glories On Christmas Eve 1863 the Mother of Jennie Wade, Mary, was still coping with the death of her 20 year old daughter. Jennie Wade House Museum
548 Baltimore Street
Gettysburg, PA
17325
 
(717) 334-4100 Jennie was the only civilian to die during the infamous battle when a stray bullet passed through two doors striking her in the back before passing through her heart.

The spirit of Mary Wade has returned to the scene of that tragic death as she painfully tries to make sense of just how it all came to be.

You are invited to join her in her time of need as she retells the tale once again. Follow her as she makes her way through the house, just as the family did in 1863, to the cellar where Jennies’ body was placed as the battle raged on outside.

Mary Wade invites you to be a part of her story. Spirits still lurk in this historic house. Will you join them tonight for this dramatic journey?

This tour begins at the Jennie Wade House Museum Gift Shop at 6pm.

Sat 20 12 - 5; Candlelight tours at 5 & 7pm Holiday 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 1860s Christmas, while hearing the story of the Shriver family and how the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War changed their lives forever. 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-laden Christmas 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.

Candlelight Christmas tours will begin on Thanksgiving evening, November 27th and continue Saturday evenings through December 20, 2014. For additional information on the Shriver House Museum or to make reservations for a Christmas tour, please call 717-337-2800.
