Adams County Historical Society

Adams County Historical Society

The society manages a museum in Shmucker Hall of the Luthern Theological Seminary, which was directly affected by the pivotal Battle of Gettysburg in July of 1863. The building sustained heavy damage and the Seminary treated hundreds of wounded Union soldiers during the 3-day battle. Today, visitors can tour the Seminary and museum and interpret the history of one of the defining moments of the Civil War.

We hope you enjoy our work.
