Edited 4/7/17–The Dobbin House is again offering free tours for 2017. It’s really a great overview of just how much has happened in Adams county since it’s founding.
Looking for a different field trip in the Gettysburg Area? The Famous Dobbin house is having free tours from now until the end of the year (not sure if they will continue into 2017) on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 10 am. My kids and I went and it was fabulous. The tour lasts anywhere from an 1- 1 1/2 hours. It starts outside and then moves inside. Did you know that house dates back as far as the Revolutionary War? I had no idea and hearing about Rev. Dobbin was just fascinating. The artifacts, the underground railroad stop, the tavern it was just comprehension for one house. One house that saw three Wars. It’s worth the time.
