1. Lee's Headquarters At Gettysburg - The Dustman Barn Foundation Marker
Inscription. The foundation in front of you is all that remains of Casper Henry Dustmanís antebellum barn, a building that stood here during the Battle of Gettysburg. Typical of barns in this area, the wood-framed section was larger than the foundation, which housed stables. The barn was later demolished, and a subsequent owner built a modern cottage on the foundation. The Civil War Trust removed this non-historic building in 2016 and stabilized the historic foundation.
