About us

 

The Seminary Ridge Historic Preservation Foundation is committed to restoring, preserving and maintaining the national historic Civil War properties, architecture and legacies of Seminary Ridge and providing related education and communication of these legacies for the general public.

The 501(c)(3) non-profit was founded in 1999 and operates the Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum, which opened July 1, 2013–150 years to the day after the Battle of Gettysburg began– and features 20,000 square feet of interactive exhibit galleries and educational programming to interpret three major areas of emphasis—none of which are the focus of any other museum in Gettysburg:

  1. the pivotal first day of the Battle of Gettysburg on Seminary Ridge
  2. the care of the wounded and human suffering within Schmucker Hall during its use as a Civil War field hospital
  3. the moral, civic, and spiritual debates of the Civil War era.
