The Gettysburg Federal Building, current home of the Adams County Library System, was secured for Gettysburg by the Honorable Daniel Franklin Lafean, a member of Congress from the 20th Pennsylvania Congressional District from 1903-1913.
Construction broke ground in the autumn of 1911, and the building was formally opened to the public as the Gettysburg Post Office on February 26th of 1914. The Library moved into the Gettysburg Federal Building in 1992.
Please join the library as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of this beautiful building!
