Lady Farm Christmas season tradition continues Dec. 10

Area Association from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10. 
    Period reenactors will supply a festive look into a family celebration of Christmas 
as the Lady family may have celebrated in the house in the 1860s. Period decorative 
techniques will festoon the house.
    Musicians, including the GBPA’s own Venture Crew 1861 Boy Scouts, will play 
period music. Guides will provide insight into the Civil War era Christmas along with 
the history of the Daniel Lady Farm, its involvement in the Battle of Gettysburg, and its 
service as a Confederate headquarters and field hospital.
    Adding to the authentic atmosphere, visitors will be treated to savory ham and bean 
soup ladled from an iron kettle.
The Daniel Lady farmhouse has been one of the most popular stops on the annual tour. 
    The day will begin for Holiday House Tour participants at the Dobbin House on 
Steinwehr Avenue in Gettysburg. 
    Now part of the Dobbin House Tavern, the house was 
built in 1776 and was part of the Underground Railroad used to help escaping slaves 
from the South. Decorated for a colonial Christmas, the Dobbin House will be open from 
9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
