Gettysburg, while host to the most devastating war in American history, is a quiet, thriving town nestled in agricultural Adams County. Although the battle put the town on the map, it has been the generations of residents who have shaped it. Frequented by many political and historic figures, the town has held on to its homespun feeling.
