The Riggs House

In the summer of 1863, Alexander Riggs and his family lived in a house that stood before you, directly across the Chambersburg Pike from Mary Thompson's. Like most of Gettysburg's dwellings, the Riggs house was caught up in the whirlwind of battle, first, as part of a Union battle line on July 1, and then within Confederate lines until July 5. It served as a hospital for wounded soldiers. In 2016, the Civil War trust employed ground-penetrating radar to locate the foundation of the Riggs house beneath the soil in front of you.
