Visitors experience rare view of Gettysburg atop seminary's cupola

Breaking News

The Adams County Historical Society provided tourists in Gettysburg a great opportunity Saturday to tour the [ Lutheran Theological Seminary] cupola, which is closed save for two times of the year.

"Until recently, nobody was allowed to go into the cupola," said Tim Smith, research assistant with the historical society. "The stairway leading up to the cupola was not safe. Our liability was insane."

In fact, the cupola was closed from 1964 to about three years ago when the historical society decided to open it for tours on a limited basis.
