Jennie Wade House


During the month of May, The Jennie Wade House hosts many school field trips throughout the week. PLEASE call or stop in to reserve your tour time.

Learn the story of the only civilian to be killed during the Battle of Gettysburg. Authentically furnished from cellar to attic, the Jennie Wade House is a shrine to Jennie and to life during the American Civil War. Just 20 years old at the time of the Battle, Jennie was kneading dough in the kitchen when a rifle bullet pierced two doors and claimed her life.

The Jennie Wade House features guides in period attire who are well-versed in the history of the home. For years, they’ve enthralled visitors with passionate retellings of the tragedy that befell young Jennie and her family.

Artifacts from that fatal day in 1863 are on display as well, including the artillery shell that punctured the roof of the house and a floorboard with Jennie’s blood still on it.

You can help to keep the memory of Jennie alive: unique Jennie Wade souvenirs and collectibles are available in the Jennie Wade Gift Shop next door.
