Beginning in 2006, the Adams County Historical Society and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg partnered for a collaborative effort to:
- Rehabilitate Schmucker Hall and convert it into a state-of-the-art museum interpreting the First Day of Battle, Civil War hospitals, the African-American Experience in Gettysburg, and Gettysburg Seminary
- Create an Archives and Education Center to enhance preservation and interpretation of archival materials and artifacts owned by Gettysburg Seminary and Adams County Historical Society, including Adams County records entrusted to the Historical Society’s care, and to provide headquarters facilities for the Historical Society
- Secure endowment to help support programming and operation of Schmucker Hall and the Archives and Education Center.
