Gettysburg's Annual Remembrance Day Parade takes place on Saturday, November 23. It is the 150th Anniversary of the Parade - the 1st one took place on November 19, 1863, when the new Soldiers Cemetery was dedicated, and when President Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address.
This year we expect about 5,000 parade participants, mostly Civil War re-enactors. The parade starts at 1 p.m. from Lefever Street to Liberty Street, then along Middle Street to Lincoln Square, then down Baltimore Street, right past The Brickhouse Inn.
At 5.30 to 9.30 there will be the 11th Annual Remembrance Illumination - the graves of Civil War soldiers will be lit with candles.
Spring come to The Brickhouse Inn - or is it summer? This photo was taken today (March 15) showing daffodils, a camellia, and flowering cherry trees. It's all happened so suddenly - I can't keep up with pruning the roses!
The Inns of Gettysburg Area presents its Annual Holiday House Tour & Tasting on Saturday, December 14. It starts at 10 a.m. with a special behind-the-scenes tour of the Historic Dobbin House Tavern (1776). Then, from noon to 5 p.m. you can visit historic homes, inns and other properties in and near Gettysburg. They will be decorated for the holiday season. Taste specialty dishes prepared by the inns and local wines. Each site will also feature an author with books for purchase and signing.
The Brickhouse Inn is not for visiting this year, although we will provide some of the snacks. If you stay with us for that weekend you will receive two complimentary tickets for the tour worth $15/person!
