“No one can come to Gettysburg unstirred by the thoughts of those who fought here, and of him who spoke here.” A profound quote by Dwight Eisenhower in 1946 as he spoke at the 114th commencement exercises of Gettysburg College.

Gettysburg College has now graduated their 2021 class and the students have gone off to start the rest of their adult lives. This past year was quite challenging for schools. Locals know that The Gettysburg Hotel, owned by the college, was used for dormitories this past school year. With things starting to return to a new normal, we’re excited that The Gettysburg Hotel will be open to the public for business as usual on July 1. Not only does the hotel serve as beautiful accommodations for our guests traveling to Gettysburg, but also as a meeting and banquet facility.
