The Inns of the Gettysburg Area, an association of fourteen premiere bed and breakfasts, is sponsoring two winter events:  Lincoln at Gettysburg on February 20, 2016 and Irish at Gettysburg on March 19, 2016.  Both events are designed to compliment a weekend stay at one of the member B&B's which can be viewed at but a limited number of tickets are available for the general public as well.


Join us for a Luncheon at the Dobbin House Restaurant on Steinwehr Ave. in Gettysburg on February 20 with President Lincoln himself in attendance. Licensed Town Guide John McTague will present a power point lecture detailing the President's visit to Gettysburg in November of 1863 when he delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the National Cemetery.  Lunch begins at 11:30 AM and the cost is $40 for adults; $30 for children under age 12.  President Lincoln, portrayed by James Hayney, will meet and greet the guests and will move from table to table during the luncheon to speak with the guests.  He will also deliver a few remarks following the luncheon.  Guests of any of the participating inns may sign up for the luncheon by contacting their innkeeper and the event will be included with the room charges for the weekend.  Outside tickets are available by phoning 717-337-9508.
