The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg was founded in 1826, making ULS the oldest Lutheran seminary in the Americas.
The 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 recreational activities.
Our 52-acre campus also hosts a greening seminary featuring 66 geothermal wells, a 16-bed kitchen garden and a mile-long historic pathway with unparalleled scenery.
One of the best things about living in Gettysburg is the opportunity to be active and engaged in both historical and contemporary issues while living in a truly unique, caring community.
