Lincoln Room Museum

Located in the Historic Wills House in Gettysburg Square, the Lincoln Room Museum offers a glimpse at the bedroom where Abraham Lincoln completed the Gettysburg Address. Owned by Judge and Mrs. David Wills during Lincoln's 1863 visit, the museum still displays most of the original furniture that occupied the president's bedroom. During your visit you'll learn about and view copies of the five drafts of the Gettysburg Address that still exist. These named copies are known as the Nicolay, Hay, Everett, Bancroft, and Bliss copies. The museum also boasts a collection of Lincoln and Gettysburg related items located in the Archives Room, including a life mask that was made when Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer.
