Farnsworth House donations

SUPPORT — Cindy Codori-Shultz sits next to a bucket in The Farnsworth House basement used to collect donations for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Tennessee.

A local legend says a boy named Jeremy, who was five or six years old, would watch older children play outside near the Farnsworth House on Baltimore Street, Gettysburg sometime after the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg.

Jeremy wanted to join them, the legend states, but he was rejected by his older peers. One day, he decided to play by himself on Baltimore Street and was trampled. Jeremy was taken to the Farnsworth House’s attic, where he died.
