Meade’s headquarters. A great historical site to see. Unfortunately it is not open very often but you can look in the windows and walk the grounds. Would recommend if visiting Gettysburg.

Last year for my birthday we made a day trip to Gettysburg and to my Surprise there was open houses. Of course I took full advantage and it was a great experience.

Located to the rear of Day Three battlefield. Only downside is how rarely it is open to the public, however you can look inside and see how tiny Meades HQ was.

Well preserved home, garden, and barn. Make sure to walk around back and look inside. There's also a red button on the wall that will give you some interesting facts!

This isn't too far from the cemetery. I'm not sure if the house is open to the public. We walked around the barn and house. They all look to be well kept.
