The location of the hotel / tavern at 501 Baltimore St,. at the intersection with Steinwehr Ave., was used for many years as a battlefield hotel from 1900 to 1950, when the hold hotel/stables was  razed and a new building was built by Peck Knox.

One side of the fan reads, “BATTLEFIELD / HOTEL / MR. & MRS. A. V. KNOX, Props. / HOME COOKED / MEALS / SPECIAL / SUNDAY DINNERS / “FOOD Fit for a King” / COMFORTABLE ROOMS / 501 Baltimore St. / GETTYSBURG 33-X”.  The reverse side has a colorful sketch of President Lincoln delivering the Gettysburg Address.

Fan measures 8 ¾” x 11”. Nice early advertising piece. After the Hotel, the site became a Gulf gas station, Sheetz convenience store, and continues to house a convenience store today. Comes with copy of newspaper article about the hotel.  [ws]
