History

History information is some background and history about the location. This is meant to be a basic summary. Below the history records you will find sources in which you can click on to find out more information. There may be multiple history records per location.


Evergreen Cemetery occupies a hill just south of Gettysburg Borough, between Baltimore Pike and Tanneytown Road. The Ever Green Cemetery Association of Gettysburg was chartered in 1853. It remains a private cemetery to this day. Many founders of the Borough of Gettysburg are interned within this cemetery.

Philadelphia architect Stephen Decatur Button designed the cemetery's gatehouse in mid-1855, and its cornerstone was laid by Reverend Samuel Simon Schmucker on September 1. Local masons George and Henry Chritzman constructed the brick building in less than 3 months,[2] at a cost of $1,025. The gatehouse served as the cemetery's office, and as the residence of its caretaker.
