Shaker Ridge Candles

Few things elicit memories as powerfully as your sense of smell–a familiar scent can transport you decades into the past. The sweet lilac of your grandmother’s perfume…the fresh cut lumber that your father worked with…the enticing aroma of your mother’s signature dish… each is a potent summoner of recollections. Our theory is that the best souvenirs of a vacation or adventure are scents—they can bring you right back!

If you’d like to test this theory yourself, we now offer the blissfully aromatic line of Shaker Ridge Candles, available in the main Tour Center. Hand-poured and lovingly crafted, each Shaker Ridge Candle contains an olfactory gem, a scent like you might have found in Gettysburg kitchens– Bayberry Cinnamon, Maple Butter, Spiced Apple, and many more.

These heavenly candles are among our newest best sellers, and they’re made in an 1850’s log cabin right here in Upper Adams County! The candles come in glass apothecary jars and nubby brown jars, but we also have them available in tin cups—replicas of the very cups the soldiers once drank out of. They are a unique and wonderful way to remember your visit to the Gettysburg Battlefield.


Take home a Shaker Ridge Candle today and smell what the fuss is about! Or check out something that tastes as sweet as they smell!
