Our tour guide was Starr. She took you back to the 19th century ,but painting a thorough picture of what it was like to live during that time. She also engaged the group by asking questions. Great job!

This house had so much history, and the stories really came alive. It's crazy to think that I thought I knew it all before!

This was a great tour - very informational with a friendly guide. The group size was at capacity but still small enough to see everything and allowed for everyone with questions to ask them.

Have always liked the story of Jennie Wade so we toured the house. Our tour guide was Ben and he did a decent job. The house is maintained well, but the items inside were shabby.

Hi Everyone! Our family will be visiting at the end of June until July 3rd and we are a little confused about how and where to purchase tickets to Jennie Wade House. When I go on the website, it only offers 2 hour day bus tours or evening ghost tours. Most likely we will buy those as well but just wanted to purchase Jennie Wade House tickets separate. Thank You :)

I plan to visit Jennie Wade House either March 23rd or March 24th. There appears to be a large lot right next to the house. Can I park in this lot? If not, where is the best place to park?

Yes you can. The lot is free as of Sept 2015. There is also a couple of spots at the Jenny Wade House itself.
