The Dobbin House Tavern is the oldest restaurant in Gettysburg, however, not many people know about its well-kept secret.
To get to the Slave Museum, you must cut through the tavern part of the resaurant. Going down and up multiple sets of stairs will allow you to finally arrive at the museum. The Dobbin residents not only served delicious food, but also kept escaped slaves safe. There is a small room behind a false cupboard. You can see where the slaves would actually hide. At the top of the stairs are a few artifacts.
