A gift to Gettysburg College in 1990 from George W. Olinger and Mac E. Olinger, life long residents of Gettysburg, zestful supporters of local history, common sense preservationists and quiet, humanitarians. Their gift of these historic buildings and land underscores the Olinger's lasting love for the town of Gettysburg and the College.

Between 1786 and 1990 this area housed a Presbyterian Church and cemetery, shirt factory, carriage making complex, blacksmith shop, a wood-works plant, a cutlery, a bottlery, two brewing companies, an ice cream factory, an ice and cold storage facility, a roofing business, personal residences and offices which were all central to the evolving industrial commercial, economic and social fabric of Gettysburg's rich history.
