It’s fascinating to note that every single one of Gettysburg’s “witness houses” tells a story. For instance, this brick home located at 238 Baltimore Street stood in this spot during the battle. It’s now the Forevermore Scrapbooks store. Like many old homes, it was modified over the years, but the majority of its design is true to its Gettysburg incarnation. If you’re ever walking the town, don’t forget to appreciate the many witness houses, and, if possible, to learn their histories. They can be quite interesting.
