For the past 49 seasons, the park has operated consistently under five different owners, bringing delight and entertainment to thousands of families. Often we hear heartwarming stories of guests who said they came with their parents when they were young, and now they are returning with their children. In 1971 they opened the Gettysburg Miniature Horse Farm on our current site which encompasses 100 beautiful acres in the rolling hills of Gettysburg. The park also became the original United States Registry for Falabella miniature horses.

The park is nestled within South Mountain, the northern terminus of the well-known Blue Ridge Mountain of Maryland and Virginia. Within South Mountain there are four state parks and 84,000 acres of state forest land waiting to be explored and enjoyed. The soils on either side of South Mountain are ideal for fruit production, proven by the abundance of orchards in the surrounding area.
Jennie Wade House
Authentically furnished from cellar to attic, the Jennie Wade House is a shrine to Jennie and to life during the American Civil War. Just 20 years old at the time of the Battle, Jennie was kneading dough in the kitchen when a rifle bullet pierced two doors and claimed her life. The Jennie Wade House features guides in period attire who are well-versed in the history of the home. For years, they’ve enthralled visitors with passionate retellings of the tragedy that befell young Jennie and her family. Artifacts from that fatal day in 1863 are on display as well, including the artillery shell that punctured the roof of the house and a floorboard with Jennie’s blood still on it. You can help to keep the memory of Jennie alive: unique Jennie Wade souvenirs and collectibles are available in the Jennie Wade Gift Shop next door.
