Lightner Farmhouse is a federal-style brick home built in 1862 by Isaac Lightner, an Adams County sheriff and farmer. We have carefully preserved the original character of Isaac Lightner’s home, including the wide moldings, random-plank floors, and four fireplaces.
Relax in front of the old beehive oven, a leftover of the summer kitchen built by Isaac Lightner. It was in this oven that bread was baked for Union soldiers in 1863.
Used as a Federal hospital for wounded soldiers following the Battle of Gettysburg, today the Farmhouse offers the feel of history with modern comforts and extraordinary hospitality.
