It has been too long since my last blog.  I promise (with Elizabeth's help) to keep you updated in a more timely way.

Let me begin by saying today is graduation at Gettysburg College and really the beginning of the busy season in Gettysburg.  The Gettysburg Festival will begin June 9th with Blues, Beer & BBQ featuring Shemekia Copeland and conclude with Red Molly on June 16th at The Majestic Theater and June 17th A Spiritual Tribute to America's Past featuring Cheryse McLeon Lewis.  It will be a fun-filled 2 week! To see all that is planned visit this Festival link

After the Festival the 149th Annual Commemoration of the Battle of Gettysburg will begin July 6th through July 8th -schedules of events can be found at:

Gettysburg in Bloom:  1st Annual Inns of the Gettysburg Area Garden Tour

A Gettysburg Fringe Festival Event
Spend an afternoon exploring ten lush gardens throughout the Gettysburg area.  Each garden has its own rich appeal - no two places look quite the same.  There are flower-filled gardens, formal and informal, large and small, all bursting into riots of color and overloading the senses with fragrant smells and sights.  June 10th, 1-5 p.m. is the date and time.  Make reservations now and join in discovering the beauty of the Gettysburg area:  it makes residents never want to leave, and it leaves visitors wishing they didn't have to!  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by phoning 717-337-3423 or by phoning the Inn at 717-337-9100.

Proceeds benefit:  Adams County Land Conservancy.

The Inn hosted our 2nd Sparkling Afternoon Tea and Fashion show with General & Mrs. Ulysses Grant on Saturday, April 21st and it was even better than the first! As you can see below, Mrs. Grant is demonstrating the use of a corset and hoop to one of our more masculine guests!  General Grant is sharing the story of their courtship and all that was expected of a young couple in that time period.
Our next Sparkling Afternoon Tea and Fashion show will be May 26th and we are hoping for beautiful weather so we can enjoy the gardens and patio.
