George Spangler Farm
"We really enjoyed the farm. The gentleman that gave the talk was wonderful. Can't wait to come back and see the finished house and barn. Thank you for your help and time talking with us."
Mike Adams and Mana Hill, Indiana
The George Spangler Farm Civil War Hospital Site is one of the most intact Civil War field hospitals used during the battle of Gettysburg. During and after the battle the Spangler family’s homestead was occupied by the Union army’s Eleventh Corps who used the buildings and fields as a hospital for some 1,900 wounded Union and Confederate soldiers.
The George Spangler Farm Civil War Hospital Site is now closed for the season. The farm will open again to the public in June 2016.
During the time the farm is closed to the public, work is being done to restore the barn and smokehouse to their original appearences. Keep up with the work being done on the site at our blog.
