Codori Spring

Codori Spring

Between 1893 & 1917 the Gettysburg Electric Railway transported visitors to the battlefield via (6) trolley cars named:  Hancock, Howard, Reynolds, Sedgwick, Sickles & Slocum.  The 12 mile long line ran from downtown Gettysburg along the Emmitsburg Road across the lower portion of the Wheatfield to Devil’s Den, then in front of Little Round Top & returning to town along Cemetery Ridge.

The Codori Spring which is located NW of the Pennsylvania Memorial & a short distance west of the intersection of Hancock & Pleasanton Avenues resembles a drainage culvert but, was actually created for use by the trolley line visitors.
