Gettysburg Presbyterian Church
Reusing the original rafters and artifacts from the circa 1842 building that was replaced in 1963, the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church offers Sunday worship services at 8:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. The original pew President Abraham Lincoln sat in when he attended a patriotic meeting here, following the ceremonies where he delivered the Gettysburg Address, is marked with a bronze plaque as is the pew that President and Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower occupied when they were members of the church in the 1960s. \"The Gettysburg Presbyterian Church was selected for a special citation as American Presbyterian and Reformed Historical Site No. 94 and is registered by the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia.\"
We attended the early service and found the place to be occupied by genuine Christians. The message was excellent. We later learned it was Dwight Eisenhower's church after he retired which made it more special for us. President Lincoln attended a meeting there after the Gettysburg Address. Lincoln impersonator Jim Getty, was there as a congregant and it was very nice.
