Historic Guided Church Tours in Gettysburg

Historic Guided Church Tours in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Heading to Gettysburg to tour the battlefield and visit the area's tourist attractions? Looking to learn even more about the American Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg? If so, you'll want to take a Guided Church Tour while you're there!

Historic Church Tours of Gettysburg offers guided tours during the months of June, July and August. They offer scheduled tours, but if you're a group and looking for a group tour...they offer those too! The tours are only offered on Wednesdays, departing from the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church at 6 PM. You'll want to arrive at least 15 minutes before departure time to purchase your tickets.

Gettysburg Presbyterian Church
Corner of Baltimore and High Streets
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Prince of Peace Episcopal Church in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Each tour lasts for approximately 2 hours and you'll be doing a lot of walking. Please dress appropriately for the current weather conditions and wear comfortable walking shoes. The tours run rain or shine!

You'll be walking a mapped out route and visiting local churches. At each participating church you'll spend about 20 minutes listening to a story about the church and the role that it played in the American Civil War (before, during and/or after) or how the church was utilized by the local community. Inside each church you'll have the opportunity to sit down during the presentation, so you will be able to "rest" along the way.

You can visit the company's official website to learn more about the tours, the mapped route that you'll be taking and to get additional information. No visit to Gettysburg is complete without visiting these historical churches and learning about their history and the role that they played during the American Civil War.
