Inscription.  

This beautifully restored Gothic Revival house, ca. 1870, was originally the home of the Rev. Luther Sieber family. Paul Sieber became Gettysburg College's first All-American football player. During World War I, the building served as the Officers Club for Camp Colt, a training camp for the U.S. Army Tank Corps under the command of Major Dwight D. Eisenhower.

This award is given to James and Barbara Entwistle for their commitment and hard work toward the betterment and beautification of Historic Gettysburg.

The John L. Andrews II Memorial Award of Main Street Gettysburg is presented in recognition of building facade improvements completed in the best interest of historic restoration and preservation.

John L. Andrews II, of the National Park Service, was a Founding Member and Secretary of the Main Street Gettysburg Board of Directors. A true believer in the mission and ideas of Main Street Gettysburg, John Andrews' relentless passion for the long term well-being of historic Gettysburg comes alive through each newly restored and preserved site.
John L. Andrews II, 1952 - 1996.
