The Anna and Cornelius Houghtelin Home History

The Farmhouse was General Merritt's Headquarters during the cavalry battle here on the South Cavalry field. The Historic Barn Venue was a Civil War Field Hospital. The home belonged to abolitionists Anna and Cornelius Houghtelin, Vice-President of Gettysburg's Anti-Slavery Society in 1835. The Solarium contains a fireplace designed by Victorian architect Frank Furness, who was a cavalry soldier with Rush's Lancers, a distinguished unit that fought on this property. The infamous artillerist Lt. Robert James dropped an engraved silver spoon on the grounds. President Eisenhower walked the property. Add your own name to the list of luminaries who have left their mark on Battlefield Bed & Breakfast.
