Hunterstown ...Then and Now

The Felty Farm

  The Felty Farm ...

On this page we may review past events and how these
events impacted preservation in Hunterstown.
For example, in the summer of 2006,
we saw the Historic Felty Barn
on Hunterstown Road torn down.
Because of the terrific press we received from
The Hanover Evening Sun
and The Gettysburg Times,
we were able to alert other publications,
websites and organizations.

"The day before this happened, when we returned to the vicinity of Gettysburg,
near a place called Hunterstown, I think,
our command had a thrilling experience and while charging a body of cavalry
down a lane leading by a barn, ran into an ambuscade of men posted in the (Felty) barn who dealt death and destruction upon us.
Within five minutes some four or five officers were killed and wounded
and about fifteen men were slain or wounded. "
