    Thanks so very much for all the important work that you do. Although everyone interested in he Gettysburg Parks will enjoy this report, those of fortunate to visit throughout the year can truly appreciate your efforts. One question: what’s planned/going on with the former Country Club?

    • The Staff says:

      A resource study is currently underway to rehabilitate the Harman Farm property and interpret not only the battle action that took place there but also the history of the Katalysine Springs Hotel. The park hopes to begin some of the physical removal of non-historic features such as the pond and sand traps from the old Country Club sometime with the next year or two. Returning the landscape of the Harman farm to its 1863 appearance and providing interpretive exhibits at the site will finally preserve the story of the farm’s history during the battle and after.
