Pry House Field Hospital Museum

Pry House Field Hospital Museum

Part of Antietam National Battlefield, this historic house served as the headquarters for Union Commander George B. McClellan. President Lincoln visited the house two weeks following the battle. Exhibits here include information on the house, a re-creation of an operating theater, and interpretations relating to care of the wounded during the battle and the battle's effects on the civilian population.

We hope you enjoy our work.
