Room History:

John Troxell was the first owner of this property in 1787 and by 1803 developed "a large and commodious new brick house". The building was two stories high and had excellent well partitioned cellars. There were eleven commodious rooms and kitchen and was planned on being used as a public house. In May of 1804 Mr. Troxell rented his property to Mr. George Welsh and on May 23, 1804 the following notice appeared in the "Sentinel",

"George Walsh wishes to inform his friends and the public in general, that he has lately opened a public house of entertainment, in that large commodious new brick building a few doors west of the court house, Gettysburg, at the Sign of the Buck, where he is provided with good liquors and every thing necessary to give suitable accommodations to all who may favor him with their custom; and hopes his excursion to please will merit their continuance and support."
