Founded in 1959, the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association continues its mission to preserve our American heritage. Much of the land in the original Gettysburg National Military Park is property that was obtained and donated by the GBPA. In 1999 the 146 acre Daniel Lady Farm was acquired and restored to continue that effort. The farm served as Major General Edward Johnson’s staging area for the Confederate attack on Culp’s Hill, and was used as a Confederate Field Hospital during the battle. Until the Park Service can accept this gift, the GBPA continues to maintain and offer the farm for tours, scout camping, Reenactor living histories, and educational seminars. In 2017 an old manufacturing building adjoining the farm property was acquired and named the Dwight D Eisenhower Education Center. Large scale renovation was begun but halted upon finding out we needed a new septic system. This building will house the GBPA offices, gift shop and new museum along with a beautiful meeting hall perfect for seminars, unit meetings and gatherings of all kinds, including dances! We need your help to maintain and continue the current efforts and to get the Education Center up and running. Thank you!
