The Klingel House, located on the Emmitsburg Road now has its log walls exposed as it did at the time of the battle. This view was taken facing southeast at approximately 2:30 PM on Sunday, November 15, 2009.

The National Park Service acquired the Klingel House, on the Emmitsburg Road, in the Spring of 2008. Since that time, some historic outbuildings have been demolished. Orchards have been replanted (sometimes in the correct location). Now the board and batten siding that previously had covered over log walls has been removed.



We’ll take a walk around the Klingel House beginning with the rear (east side). This view was taken facing northwest at approximately 2:30 PM on Sunday, November 15, 2009.
