    I don't know when the Holiday Inn Gettysburg (Battlefield)was built, but it's in the same block as the Jenny Wade House. The hotel is at 516 Baltimore Street, and the house is at 528.

    It seems highly unlikely that the city would have moved a historic house and popular tourist attraction to accommodate a Holiday Inn. Also, there has always been a buzz about the cellar of the Jenny Wade House -- where her body was laid out before burial -- being haunted. It's pretty hard to move a cellar with a house. You'd think that if the house had been moved, it would be the basement of the Holiday Inn that was haunted.
