Seminary Ridge Museum

Nurses and doctors tirelessly cared for the wounded on the Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary’s campus during the weeks following the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg.

One hundred fifty years later, in 2013, Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center opened on the site of the former field hospital. The museum helps tell the story of the battle and the community’s immediate compassion.
