2013 marks the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, the pivotal battle in our nation’s greatest struggle. This turning point in the Civil War took place July 1-3, 1863, and Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address was delivered that November 19th to commemorate the battlefield as a national cemetary. The commemoration of the battle will involve many events in Gettysburg between June 28th and July 7th, 2013, as well as additional events November 17-24.

As you can imagine, lodging in the Gettysburg area has been booked solid for many months in anticipation of the commemoration. But from here at the Apple Bin Inn it’s an easy drive to Gettysburg (about 75 minutes), and we will be welcoming many travelers who are here for the Gettysburg festivities, as well as the many great activities right here in Lancaster County. We welcome Civil War buffs and historians, and we even have a special section filled with Civil War books in our extensive library. So come spend a few days at the Apple Bin Inn, and enjoy all that south central Pennsylvania has to offer!
