A Museum in Downtown Gettysburg
The David Wills House Museum is a National Park Service museum in downtown Gettysburg that opened on Feb. 12, 2009 — the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday.

The museum features six galleries, including two rooms that have been restored to their 1863 appearance; Wills’ office, where he received letters from families seeking loved ones after the battle and began planning for the national cemetery; and the bedroom where Lincoln stayed and prepared to deliver the Gettysburg Address.
