Located within the James Gettys Hotel is Lord Nelson's Gallery. What evolved from an import shop selling Guatemalan goods, Belgian lace and chocolates, Alaskan carvings, and Black Hills Gold jewelry, now specializes in wildlife art and gifts in addition to its mainstay -- art depicting the 18th century frontier. "Nelson" was our 14-year-old Black Lab for whom the store is named. Located at 27 1/2 Chambersburg Street in downtown Gettysburg, Lord Nelson's is now a well established business serving customers throughout the country.

Lord Nelson's gift line includes decorative decoys, wildlife sculptures, animal and dog figurines, nature related audios and books, candles, stationary, pottery, and jewelry. As you enter the shop, however, you can't help but notice the varied selection of wildlife art. These prints are signed and numbered by the artists and range from depictions of bear, moose, wolves, and dogs, to nostalgic scenes of old homes and farms. The gallery is an authorized dealer for renowned artists Carl Brenders, William Phillips, John Weiss, Heide Presse, Robert Bateman, and Charles Peterson, just to name a few.

The most widely collected art available at Lord Nelson's is the Eastern Frontier Art. Artists Robert Griffing, John Buxton and David Wright are the gallery's three premier artists whose works cover various aspects of the French and Indian War period. Scenes of Fort Pitt (now Pittsburgh) and Fort Ligonier, depictions of typical Indian paths and canoes, and portrayals of decisive military engagements, all with an unprecedented degree of authenticity, are just what you find in the art of these individuals. Unlike the Civil War, the 18th century preceded the advent of the camera. Therefore, depicting this time period takes extensive research; then, with the talent of the artist, it is brought to life by brushstrokes. Today, Lord Nelson's is the nation's largest representative of Eastern Frontier art. The gallery hosts artists' shows throughout the year and continues the annual "History Meets the Arts" town-wide historical art show held in April.

In March of 1990, when Lord Nelson's first opened, interest in the James Gettys Hotel building began. Through the years, the idea of reviving the James Gettys Hotel continued and in the Spring of 1995, a co-owner of Lord Nelson's purchased the building. In October of that year, renovations began and the James Gettys Hotel once again shines in downtown Gettysburg.
