Located on the south side of Gettysburg is Steinwehr Avenue, what once was the location of the Gettysburg Visitor Center. Before moving to the other side of town, on Baltimore Pike, the visitor center drew lots of visitors to Steinwehr Avenue. But now the Gettysburg roadway gets little traffic and businesses there are hurting. So borough officials are discussing a revitalization plan.
The Gettysburg Visitor Center and Museum relocated last April. Since then, Gettysburg businesses on Steinwehr Avenue have seen a decline and the borough has not seen the revenue from the new center that it thought it would. So borough officials are trying to get a handle on the money.
Well, at least they’re not saying that tourism is dead. People are still coming to Gettysburg. They’re just not going to Steinwehr Avenue.
