Must see for all historians and non-historians. Lincoln stayed here the night before delivering his famous address. Wills was instrumental in securing 17 ac to bury dead from war.
We really enjoyed this visit. Details of the Gettysburg battlefield can be overwhelming and tedious. Yes Lincoln slept here before giving his Gettysburg Address. Here you can learn how people of the town responded to the battle that came to their town. Mr Willis a young influential man in the community was asked to find an appropriate final resting place... 更多
This is an awesome piece of history. To walk through and learn what it was like to be there and prepare to finish the Gettysburg Address, it is overwhelming to take in. In addition to this, the welcome we received was unbelievable. Very warm and inviting and could ask many questions without feeling you were bothering them. Truly a great... 更多

This should be the first stop to start to understand what happened in Gettysburg during the civil war. The layout and rooms explain the locals participation during the war.
A must see. 33 year old David Wills had Lincoln staying at his house the night before Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address. Short walk from the place the train came into Gettysburg.
Over many years I have been to everything in Gettysburg but never to this museum. As seniors we paid $5.50 each which was about the 'value'. inside. I felt it was nice but nothing grand. Two period rooms and 2 videos were best part. Rest are photos and written description of the Willis family, the time they resided there, Lincoln's... 更多
This historic home is worth the short hour or so it will take you to self-guided tour it. Restoration is impressive. Exhibits give sense of how it was for the residents of Gettysburg, something we did not see elsewhere.
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.
