The Gettysburg Hotel is the centerpiece of Lincoln Square.
In 1797, James Scott built Scott's Tavern on this site. A former sheriff of York County, William McClellan acquired the tavern in 1809 and named it The Indian Queen. From 1846 to 1890, it was the McClellan House owned by the McClellan brothers. In 1890, a new owner christened it The Hotel Gettysburg and so it remained through the 20th century. In 1955, it was part of a temporary White House while President Eisenhower recuperated at Gettysburg from a heart attack. In 1983, a fire destroyed the building. In 1991, the reconstructed building opened as the Gettysburg Hotel, and the tradition continues with a restaurant named Centuries on the Square and a lounge appropriately named Scott's Tavern.
