Preservation Progress

Gettysburg National Military Park to remove modern intrusions from Devil's Den
The Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation will be working together this spring to remove modern intrusions from Devil's Den on the Gettysburg battlefield. The Gettysburg Foundation has raised funds to remove the restroom as well as the intrusive utility lines that provide power to it. The Foundation will also bury intrusive overhead utility lines in several areas in the southern part of the battlefield near the historic Althoff, Slyder, and Trostle farms.
