We were welcomed on the porch by two very nice people in period garb! They were knowledgeable about the history of not only The Rupp House but any question we asked! Well worth a visit during your stay in Gettysburg!

History of Rupp and hid his family during the war. A video, the bible they had in the house. A guide to give you some history and answer your questions. Free is the best part.
