Jennie Wade House Museum

While your adult group is touring Gettysburg, you should stop by and check out the Jennie Wade House. The location is dedicated in memory of Jennie Wade who was the only civilian to be fatally wounded during the Battle of Gettysburg. The house is furnished with the original furniture. The museum has been in operation since 1906. Jennie was only 20 years old at the time of the battle. The young woman was kneading dough in the kitchen when a bullet pierced through two of the doors and claimed her life.

The group will have the opportunity to walk around the house in the course of the visit. You will be led by a staff member dressed in period costume and well-versed in the history of the home. The team will also have the opportunity to check out some fascinating artifacts that are from that fatal day in 1863. One of the artifacts on display is the artillery shell that punctured the roof of the house and a floorboard with Jennie’s blood still on it.

In the course of the visit, group members can check out the items in the Jennie Wade Gift Shop. Visitors will find items such as a Jennie Wade Doll, the Jennie Wade Story, and Jennie Wade’s Wooden House Shelf Sitter. The Wooden House is a wooden likeness to the Jennie Wade House. The item is a limited edition piece and truly collectible. Group members of all ages will enjoy visiting this fascinating museum.
