This Civil War-era barn and farmhouse sit on the Gettysburg Battlefield and allow for indoor or outdoor ceremonies and receptions.

Built in 1809, the farmhouse belonged to abolitionists Anna and Cornelius Houghtelin and was headquarters for General Merritt during the Civil War. The Solarium contains a fireplace designed by Victorian architect Frank Furness. The property became a bed and breakfast in 1994. The owners have over 25 years of experience with hospitality, events, and weddings. Couples can enjoy their day knowing they are in good hands.

The lawns and gardens are perfect for outdoor ceremonies. The Solarium, which is available year-round, features natural sunlight, a dramatic historic fireplace, cathedral ceiling, and chandeliers. It is perfect for a ceremony or reception and seats up to 79 guests. The Gardens include a structured Wedding Garden, a Front Patio Garden with wrought-iron umbrella tables, a flexible Great Lawn, and a cozy Fire-Pit circle with four propane fire pits. There is also a multitude of picturesque nooks all around the grounds with stone walls, split rail fences, bench gliders, ponds, woods, and three-season plantings.

Wow - the historic venue of my dreams

The entire team of B3 was fantastic from our first tour until the morning after.

Connie took the time to not just hand us a list of preferred vendors but understand our dream for the wedding and give us tailored recommendations.

We had no needs from day before wedding when we arrived at 10 am to a fully decorated barn and beautiful rooms for all (don鈥檛 even think of not staying on site).

The full team rolled with all the punches with calmness making me unusually calm wedding day. Things went wrong, but no one let it effect my peace, wedding dreams, or happiness.

Best Barn Venue in Gettysburg and more!!!

We were extremely satisfied with the venue and everything at the Battlefield B&B. I would not have been able to do it without Connie. She was so helpful, friendly, kind, and passionate about matching our vision of a perfect day with a great day. Our expectations were outdone! Thank you for everything. We cannot wait to return for our anniversary. Your farm and venue is probably the prettiest around =)

Team

Constance Tarbox
Constance Tarbox
Event Coordinator

Constance Tarbox is the daughter of Battlefield B&B Innkeeper Florence March and step-daughter of Innkeeper Debbie March. After creating theater in New York City for over 20 years, she moved back home in 2017 to re-join the family business. She loves getting to know our wonderful guests and bringing her producing experience to the B&B鈥檚 special events.

A California native, Connie was in high school when the family decided to move to Gettysburg and open the B&B in 1994. Her summers and weekends were spent in her Civil War dress, serving breakfast at the B&B.

She moved to New York to attend Barnard College. She met wonderful friends and created beautiful art with them. One of these productions introduced her to Lance Windish, a genius performer with whom she fell in love. Connie and Lance were married at the B&B in 2006, the first wedding in the newly updated barn.

Connie and Lance have two wonderful daughters, Parker and Alice. They frequently make appearances at the B&B, helping to bake cookies, tend the garden, and herd cats.

Florence March
Florence March
Innkeeper

Florence March has been innkeeping since 1994. She loves music, teaching, cooking, and gardening. In a world long ago and far away, she studied geology and worked in a science lab analyzing meteorites while looking for signs of life in outer space. While raising children, she trained as a music docent and taught elementary music in the California public schools.

Yes, Florence is a Californian at heart. She was born in Hollywood and grew up in California. She moved to Gettysburg in 1993 to convert a historic farmhouse into an inn where guests can create memories and go away knowing more than they did when they arrived.

"When you visit, I would love to tell you about my song-writing. Songwriting makes me think. I've also written some piano music.

I accompany the choir and the hymns at the Unitarian Universalists of Gettysburg. I was one of the founding members of this church and we started right here in the Parlor at Battlefield Bed & Breakfast in 2002.

I'm excited about the garden this year. We are expanding our herb garden and starting a new, larger vegetable garden. I like to plant flowers to feed butterflies and bees.

I am very interested in the stories of all the people whose history has touched the historic building that I take care of. I can't say I own it. It owns me. Ask about the stories of the house.

See you soon!" - Florence

If you are considering a venue in the Gettysburg area, the Battlefield needs to be on top of your list. This beautiful setting is second to none and their professionalism is unmatched. We have been lucky to capture some of our favorite memories at this location with a winter wedding in 2014 that is still one of the highlights from that year. While many venues are not known to allow photographers to use their property except for the day of the event, the Battlefield allows us to not only shoot engagement session there, but also other types of photography. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this venue and is one of our favorites in Central PA
