This stop is a little out of the way and you would miss it if you aren't looking. They have really cool displays of what the ticket office used to look like, the trains still run through here, and they do historic train rides as well

The history of the building was very interesting. I really enjoyed the little model & the story of Lincoln's arrival; learning about the difference in the railroad tracks.The staff was very informative & friendly. I even picked up a couple souvenir's!

Be sure to get your Passport Stamp while here. This is not a large place so you can learn a lot in a short time. Just around the corner from David Wills House.

This museum is small but helps visitors visualize Lincoln's visit to Gettysburg, as it was here that his train stopped, and he walked up the street to the David Wills house.

Bonnie, who works for the National Park Service, recommended the Railroad Station as well as David Wills house. They were both worth the visit.

The railroad station museum is a must stop for any history buff. It doesn't matter if it's Rail road history, Civil War history or a love of historic buildings this station is well worth stopping at. You're also at the center of town where the confederate flag was raised for a short period of time during the battle of Gettysburg,... More
