Lees Headquarters Building Opens In Gettysburg

10.31.16 |

The house that served as the commander center for General Robert E. Lee's army in the battle at Gettysburg was officially preserved over the weekend.

After more than a year of work, the Civil Rights Trust opened the structure on Friday. On the afternoon of July 1st, 1863, General Lee rode past the structure and deemed it was the best place for a command center.

The four acre property cost over $6 million to restore. It now looks exactly the way it did in 1863 when General Lee rode away for the last time.

You can now visit General Lee's headquarters during park hours in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
