The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg was founded in 1826, making ULS the oldest Lutheran seminary in the Americas.
The 52-acre seminary was also a key location during the Battle of Gettysburg. Thus, a simple walk around campus provides students and their families with what we call a “thin space” experience; a sense that we’re standing in the space that exists between and beyond the temporal.
While Gettysburg, PA is a small town, our unique location draws approximately three million visitors per year. In fact, Trip Advisor named Gettysburg the top historical family vacation spot in the nation!
The town is set to accommodate both tourists and residents with restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and historical and recreational activities.
