The Mud College School is the only one room school in the Littlestown Area that has been preserved as it was when it closed. This school is located along route 97 toward Gettysburg. It is opened several times a year for visits or arrangements can be made through Mount Joy Township to visit the school. This school was bought at Public Auction by the Crouse Family. Later it was given back to the township, with a sum of money to help in preserving it for historic purposes.

One of Gettysburg’s most popular restaurants is also its oldest building- and one of its most historic. Built in 1776 for Reverend Alexander Dobbin, the house has been witness to historic political and religious meetings, students gathering for class, slaves seeking refuge on “The Underground Railroad,” and to the Battle of Gettysburg. To read about the Dobbin House is to read about the history of Gettysburg, and stirring moments in our nation’s history.
