George Spangler Farm & Field Hospital

Event Subtemplate Image

The George Spangler Farm & Field Hospital Site is one of the best surviving example of a farm used as a corps field hospital during and after the Battle of Gettysburg. One minute, George Spangler and his family were working on their 80-acre farm. The next, the battle came to Gettysburg, and their family farm was transformed into one of the largest field hospitals and artillery staging areas in the battle.

The farm with living history encampments and special programs is open to visitors Friday-Sunday in the summer months. Access is via shuttle bus from the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center.
