The Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station, also known as the "Gettysburg Train Station," "Lincoln Train Station" or "Western Maryland Railroad Station," is a historic train station with depot, platform, museum and offices on Carlisle Street in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Operable from 1858 to 1942, it contributes to the Gettysburg Battlefield Historic District and is most notable as President Abraham Lincoln's point of arrival on November 18, 1863 and departure, following delivery of the Gettysburg Address). The station served as both a hospital during the battle and hub for outgoing wounded soldiers and incoming resources and supplies following the end of the war. On 2015, following several years of delays, the station, which was originally owned by the Borough of Gettysburg but was bought by the Gettysburg Foundation, the non-profit partner to the National Park Service, was placed the purview of the National Park Service.

  • We learned some very interesting facts at this museum about the village, railway and the battle. Staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable.  more »
  • Not a large museum, but the docents are enthusiastic, and you get a sense of Lincoln's arrival into town by train the night before he delivered his address.  more »

  • A nice little free museum to stop in and walk around for a few minutes.
  • Very neat historical site. The lady was very informative. This is not a place for younger kids, they just don't understand why it is a neat experience. It is conveniently located by a parking garage.
