Children of Gettysburg

CITIZENS OF GETTYSBURG

Sallie Myers. Tillie Pierce. Lydia Ziegler. Lloyd Watts.

Experience the stories of Gettysburg through the words of the civilians who lived here during and after the battle.

Engaging first-hand accounts and interactive exhibits will bring the stories to life for your children, grandchildren and a new generation of young historians and preservationists. 

HANDS ON

New thematic settings, interactive displays and engaging activities will provide young visitors with even more opportunities to explore, touch and learn about civilian life during the battle.

The scavenger hunt?

It's back, and it's even more fun and more educational.

HISTORIC. NOT OUT OF DATE.

Ever since the Friends of the National Park at Gettysburg purchased the building in 2002, the Rupp House has served as a history center - telling the stories of the civilian and soldier experience during the battle, the aftermath and preservation efforts.

None of that will change.

The Rupp House will receive a much needed update, some new technology and exhibits but will always remain accessible, educational and - most of all - historic.

Join us in providing a fresh, educational experience for families and our younger visitors.

Don't worry, we're still telling the story of the Rupp family.

We may even let John out of the cellar.

Help us renovate the Rupp House for an engaging new experience, Spring 2021.
