Proposed gambling at Gettysburg sparks emotion on both sides of debate

Chance Enterprises is a long way from No Casino Gettysburg. Instead of a phone, laptop and fax machine in the living room of a rustic farmhouse, Chance Enterprises has lined up a collegiate economic study, public relations executives, lawyers, architects and the backing of financial giant Morgan Stanley.

Chance Enterprises is the parent company of Crossroads Gaming Resort and Spa. Crossroads is a proposed $300 million, 3,000-slot casino at the U.S. 15-U.S. 30 intersection at Gettysburg, about 10 miles from Emmitsburg. Millennium Gaming, which would operate the casino, has casinos in Detroit, Las Vegas, and Melbourne, Australia.
