You know what happened on battlefield...but do you know what happened to...

You know what happened on battlefield...but do you know what happened to the families and their homes in town?

    The Shriver House Museum is an award-winning Civil War museum dedicated to the civilian experience during the Battle of Gettysburg. The story is told through the eyes of the Shriver family whose ancestors settled in the area in the 1700s. While George Shriver served in the Union army, his wife, Hettie, was worried about the safety of their daughters, Mollie (5) and Sadie (7), as well as their home. When soldiers filled the streets of Gettysburg, Hettie chose to take her children back to her family's farm three miles south of town, by Big Round Top; she knew they would be out of harm's way there. Hettie could not know she jumped from the frying pan into the fire or that her unoccupied home would offer the Rebels an outstanding view of Union ground. It was quickly commandeered by Confederates to set up a sharpshooters' nest in the attic.

    Today the home of George and Hettie Shriver appears much the same way it did when it was built in 1860, just months before the Civil War began. Guides in period dress recount the harrowing story of the Shriver family's experiences as you walk through the Shrivers' home - including the Confederate sharpshooters nest in the attic and Shriver's Saloon in the cellar. The story of George Shriver was not well-known until 1996 when his house, which sat abandoned for nearly 30 years, was painstakingly restored to its original 1860s appearance. Today, the Shrivers' story is one of the most intriguing stories told when it comes to the civilian aspect of the Battle of Gettysburg.

We did the candlelight tour over thanksgiving weekend. It was a great experience going back in time to 1860's. We made reservations in advance over the phone with a credit card. Parking was up front and it's metered until 8 pm. The house was nicely decorated for Christmas. The staff and owners are really nice and sweet. They have a... 更多

This was a tour of the house with all the Christmas decorations, lit by candles. The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the house and its history. The tour focuses on how the war affected the Shrivers at Christmas and each floor focused on a different year. I highly recommend this tour!

After hearing all about the battle and all the troops fighting here and there, this should be your very next stop. First of all, the house has been painstakingly and lovingly restored to award winning quality. But even better, based on excellent research and diaries, this attraction tells the story of a family living in Gettysburg during the Battle and... 更多

This is a great chance to understand what it was like for the families in this town suddenly overwhelmed by the battle encompassing and determining their lives. This is one woman's story of survival and loss. How her home was turned into a battle sight and the aftermath of trying to reestablish normalcy. Another perspective of how the war turned... 更多

The guides are very knowledgeable and the history of the house is fascinating! During the battle anniversary dates, there are re-enactors throughout the house that get visitors involved in the story. Tis is a must-see place in Gettysburg!

My husband and I checked out this house for the first time recently even though we have been to Gettysburg multiple times. We were definitely not disappointed! The guide (Gail I believe??) was VERY knowledgeable and gave us an excellent tour. As well as seeing the house from the civilian point of view during the war, you also see the... 更多

Nancy was our guide and she did a wonderful job! She met our group on the bus and gave us a brief background of the Shrivers. She made the sad story of this family come alive as we visited each room of the house. She made us realize the sacrifices that the civilians of Gettysburg made during the battle. This... 更多

We chose this tour to learn more about the civilian point of view during the Civil War. We were lucky to have the current owner personally conduct our tour. Guides are dressed in period costumes adding to the experience. It was very interesting to hear about the Shriver family, what the townspeople saw and heard as the troops came through... 更多

I have visited Gettysburg several times and toured the museums and the battlefield and until I visited the Shriver House I never fully understood that the town IS part of the battlefield! We enjoyed the tour of the lovingly restored property with our host - who turned out to be the owner. Excellent experience that I would highly recommend. Tours... 更多
