Mon 22 8:00am-5:00pm Special Exhibit Gettysburg Foundation and NPS to Exhibit Newly Conserved Nativity Dioramas The Gettysburg Foundation and the National Park Service are bringing several Eisenhower-era artifacts out of storage for the first time in 15 years Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center - Gettysburg Foundation & National Park Service

1195 Baltimore Pike
Gettysburg, PA

1-877-874-2478 Beginning on December 3, 2014, visitors at the Museum and Visitor Center can view three newly conserved Nativity dioramas that President Dwight D. and Mamie Eisenhower displayed during the holiday season in the East Room of the White House.

The dioramas, gifts from Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn of Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania, were hand crafted by artists Winfred S. Hyatt and Hanna Weil Fischer-Binder with additional work by Bryn Athyn Studios of Building & Architectural Arts. In 1954, the first of the dioramas depicting the manger scene was presented to the First Family. In 1957 two additional scenes depicting the shepherds and the wise men were also crafted and presented along with an audio narrative of the Christmas story. Before leaving the White House in 1961, Mrs. Eisenhower presented the three Nativity dioramas to the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church where they were displayed until 1994. With major church renovations underway, the congregation loaned the dioramas to the Eisenhower National Historic Site for display. Donated to the NPS permanently in 1998, the dioramas were only displayed for two years because of sustained damages.

Sat 27 6:00pm Haunted

/Paranormal

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.

1-877-874-2478 Beginning on December 3, 2014, visitors at the Museum and Visitor Center can view three newly conserved Nativity dioramas that President Dwight D. and Mamie Eisenhower displayed during the holiday season in the East Room of the White House.

The dioramas, gifts from Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn of Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania, were hand crafted by artists Winfred S. Hyatt and Hanna Weil Fischer-Binder with additional work by Bryn Athyn Studios of Building & Architectural Arts. In 1954, the first of the dioramas depicting the manger scene was presented to the First Family. In 1957 two additional scenes depicting the shepherds and the wise men were also crafted and presented along with an audio narrative of the Christmas story. Before leaving the White House in 1961, Mrs. Eisenhower presented the three Nativity dioramas to the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church where they were displayed until 1994. With major church renovations underway, the congregation loaned the dioramas to the Eisenhower National Historic Site for display. Donated to the NPS permanently in 1998, the dioramas were only displayed for two years because of sustained damages.
