We actually took the ghost tour through the Jennie Wade House. Although we had no activity, walking through the house and hearing her story was interesting. My children also enjoyed the tour. If you are taking a trip to Gettysburg you must stop in and see the this house.

Great story to Jennie Wade. I learned a lot of history the week I spent in Gettysburg. I didn't know the Jennie Wade story and the part of history she played in.

Another in a series of really well done, well run Gettysburg tours. Jennie was the only town civilian to die during the three days of the civil war and to hear her story is to get a better sense of history. The guide gave a dramatic performance and our whole family liked it a lot.

Educational, affordable. Being in the house, seeing it and hearing the details was well worth it. Our guide (young female) was serious about the story, as she should be. I recommend it.

My wife and I took a tour of the Jennie Wade house. The tour was pretty good and worth the price of admission.

The tour and Starr our tour guide was very educational. Starr was great at telling what happened on that day that took the life of a young civilian lady and the fate of her family, beau, and childhood friend. Thank you for being part of our walk back in time.
