The house is named in honor of Brigadier General Elon John Farnsworth, who led an ill-fated charge after the failure of Pickett's charge, claiming the lives of Farnsworth and 65 of his men.

      The original part of the house was built in 1810, followed by the brick structure in 1833. The house sheltered Confederate sharpshooters during the three-day conflict, one of whom it is believed to have accidentally shot 20 year-old Mary Virginia "Jennie"  Wade, the only civilian who died during the battle. More than 100 bullet holes pock the walls. Following the battle, the house served as a hospital.

Experience multiple ghost presentations...

Our period dressed guides will spin tales of the strange and unexplained that took place, and STILL take place,  in the house and throughout the town of Gettysburg.


The Farnsworth House Inn welcomes guests and offers gracious accommodations year round. We invite you to surround yourself with an enchanting blend of intimate atmosphere and Victorian elegance.

Dine by candlelight in our authentically restored dining room among original decor such as photographs by famed Civil War photographer Mathew Brady. Experience a variety of period specialty fare served by period dressed servers.

Period Dining

     The Lincoln procession passed the Farnsworth House on November 19, 1863, on the way to the National Cemetery where he delivered the famous Gettysburg Address. Harvey Sweney, the owner of the house during the battle, composed a letter to his brother, penning the most insightful and powerful account ever written on the subject.

     Our Bed & Breakfast guests enjoy lovely Victorian rooms. For a dining experience reminiscent of the Civil War era, our Meade and Lee dining rooms offer Pennsylvania Dutch and period fare served by period dressed servers. Our family friendly Sweney's Tavern features a vast collection of props from the movie, Gettysburg. The garret (attic) holds a personal collection of Civil War artifacts. The Farnsworth House has won many awards and recognition over the years. A&E, BBC, Food Network, Discovery, History, Sci-Fi, and Travel Channels, Hollywood Squares and Wheel of Fortune have featured our Historic Inn.

      The Farnsworth House Inn is in good company. Fine Living Magazine puts it in the same category as the legendary Don CeSar Beach Resort in St. Petersburg, Florida. It has the same distinction as the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, the Queen Mary Hotel in Long Beach and the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast in Fall River Massachussetts. Whats the connection? They are all among the most haunted locations in America.
