This house is definitely worth a visit if you are in Gettysburg. They have done a remarkable job in restoring this house to its condition in November of 1863. The rooms contain many period pieces. What is nice is that you can stroll through the various rooms at your own pace.
As others who have written poor reviews of this place have stated, it's not worth it! Everything is "modern", even the outside of the building. The entire "self guided tour" took all of 10 minutes. The free museums right up the street were much better.
This was where Lincoln stayed before giving his Gettysburg Address. They have the original bed and bedspread he slept in. Also very detailed information about Wills, the dedication of the National Cemetery, and details about the three day battle. Tickets for adults $6 I believe.
Visited the Wills House last weekend as a couple and took the self-guided tour. Beautifully preserved home featuring furniture in the bedroom where Lincoln stayed while in town to deliver the Gettysburg Address. Amazing to see the actual pieces! Lots of info provided on both floor and several videos to watch throughout the home. The guide in the lobby was... 更多
Well laid out museum run by the National Park Service. Exhibits have been well researched and it is interesting to see where Lincoln slept before he gave the address at Gettysburg (the bed seemed a little short for such a tall man). I particularly enjoyed studying the replica of the town during that time and comparing it to what I... 更多
The David Wills house is where Lincoln spend the night before delivering the Gettysburg Address. The bedroom where Lincoln stayed has been beautifully preserved and the audio in the room sets the right tone to take you back with the president before his historic speech. The tour was very quick, though, and unremarkable other than seeing the bedroom. This is... 更多
This is a self guided tour. There is lots of information about the house, David Wills and the battle of Gettysburg. The house opened to the public in 2009 and was used for other purposes in the intervening years but a few of the rooms have been restored to how they would have looked in 1863 when Abraham Lincoln stayed... 更多
We toured the house and there was very few original features to the house. Basically you tour 5 or 6 rooms with a Video playing in 2 which were very informative. The room Lincoln slept in was furnished but other than this room and one on the first level it really didn't have much on display. That being said it... 更多
Spent $20 for my family of 4 to visit the house where Lincoln slept and finished the final copy of the Gettysburg Address. If you have read my story, you have now received all the information you will get from your visit. You can walk into the bedroom and see the bed where Lincoln slept. You can also Google "bed... 更多
