Mary Penn Bed & Breakfast
1716 Mason Dixon Road
Gettysburg, PA    

Mark your calendars for June 1, 2019 and help the Cumberland Township Historical Society and the Adams County Historical Society celebrate the 270th Anniversary of Cumberland Township. This event will be held at the Mary-Penn B & B located on 716 Mason Dixon Road, Gettysburg. This beautiful property is divided in half by the Mason Dixon Line. There will be two different performances by the French and Indian Reenactors, Wayne Twigg and Phil Angle will be representing Mason and Dixon and will have early survey equipment on display and will discuss how the work on the Mason Dixon Line was accomplished. 

On the property are two of the original mile marker stones. These have recently been put on the National Registry. Hay rides will go to one of the stones and the other is in easy walking distance. 

Folks will be on hand explaining early crafts and demonstrate those techniques. Colonial games will be held just to mention a few of the activities.
