David Wills House

David Wills House Review

The David Wills House is where Abraham Lincoln stayed and completed his Gettysburg Address on November 18, 1863. The restored building features seven galleries, including the bedroom where Lincoln slept and worked on the final versions of his speech, as well as the office of Wills, a prominent lawyer who helped direct the city's clean-up after the battle and was a leading force behind the creation of the national cemetery. They've recently added a diorama depicting the city as it looked at the time.
