Rumors and Facts in Gettysburg and Adams County

Gettysburg RumorsWelcome to the Gettysburg RUMORS page, where we try to compile and update all the rumors around the county in ONE place. We get asked the same questions a lot from folks around the county, so we are hoping this will help everyone have a central location to go to confirm or deny whether a rumor is true or not.

Disclaimer: We will not be posting anything bashing a citizen in the county. If someone has been arrested that is a prominent figure, we may mention it, but please don’t ask us questions that are private. Only public record.
