Gettysburg is a small town of 7,400 people in southern Pennsylvania at the intersection of Routes 30 and 15. Gettysburg is most famous for the Battle of Gettysburg in the Civil War, the titanic, decisive clash between the Union and Confederate armies in 1863, which oddly enough occurred entirely by accident in Gettysburg as the Confederate Army was probing north in July, 1863. One of the great benefits of buying a home in this area is the tremendous amount of fascinating Civil War history there is to be learned in this charming little town. For example, there is Gettysburg National Military Park, with over 1,000 monuments and cannon along over 40 miles of scenic roads, a battlefield shrine to the Union and Confederate soldiers who fought there.

Originally, Chambers were founded to "encourage commerce, support industry, adjust disputes relative to trade and navigation, and produce such laws and regulations as may be found necessary for the benefit of trade in general." Today the Gettysburg-Adams County Area Chamber of Commerce still follows these original objectives, but they have expanded to include the community's welfare as a top priority.
