My old war Horse as Gen. Lee called him, Longstreet on July 3rd was the lead commander of Pickett's Charge(Longstreet's Assault) which is a day that changed the tide of the Civil War.

Northern Spy Chamber
This stunning room was named in tribute to the delightful Northern Spy apple that once grew in the rolling hills and beautiful countryside of Gettysburg and Adams County. During the 1860's nearly every farmer had an apple orchard to use for the family and livestock. Because of the rich soil many of the farmers expanded their orchards and began selling apples as well as other produce. Today Pennsylvania is ranked as one of the largest apple growing states in the nation and our area has some of the largest orchards in PA. This eye catching room has everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
