Circa 1829, the Inn was named after Matilda J. Pierce who, at the age of fifteen, witnessed the battle of Gettysburg in 1863. Tillie provided food and water to the soldiers and assisted in caring for the wounded. Twenty-five years later, she wrote a book called " At Gettysburg, Or What a Girl Saw and Heard of the Battle" recounting her experiences of the battle.
With rich blue walls and warm wool orientals on the floor, this ample room showcases one of the Inn's original fireplaces. Unique antique furniture and a wonderfully comfortable queen size bed with rich linens await guests. Also vibrant historical art on the walls, along with cable television and WiFi, create a haven for those who want history and the modern world to coexist during their stay. Hettie was Tillie's neighbor and the lady with whom she left to find refuge elsewhere as the retreat started on the first day of the battle.

This vibrant warm yellow room was the girlhood space of our namesake, and was probably where the beginning of her book took shape before she married and moved away from Gettysburg. The elegant bed coverings, extra soft sheets, phenomenally comfortable mattress along with antiques and WiFi access make this a charming haven of repose.

This rich green room is in the northeast corner of the 2nd story of the house. With two large windows occupants look out onto historic Baltimore Street. An antique bureau and armoir on either side of the fireplace lend it an old world charm. The extremely comfortable queen size bed is covered with richly colored linens and the warm rust-red accents draw one in. This room is named for the mistress of the Evergreen Cemetery whose husband was away during the battle. She took up the shovel and interred many of the fallen left in the cemetery after the battle even while heavy with child.

Recently stayed at TPHI again and the experience just gets better. When you walk through the doors, you do indeed step back into time. The innkeeper, Becky, is second to none…she will make you feel most welcome and ensure your stay is top-notch. Be sure to ask her about the history of the house. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. It is true that the TPHI is haunted but it is delightfully so. Probably some of the best sleep I get is at this place…very relaxing. Its location can’t be beat as you can pretty much walk to any place you want to go. The next time you are in Gettysburg, be sure to stay here. Had to enter a Dining Score...though dinner isn't served here, you are within walking distance to great dining experiences. ~ Robert

Sept 2013, 5 Couples came to Gettysburg to celebrate the history teachers 40th birthday. We stayed at the Tillie Pierce and were very pleased with the choice. The places boasts of a central location in town minutes from The Square, shopping and a variety of nice restaurants. The rooms are beautiful, many antiques and period pieces in a newly renovated Civil War house - the best of both worlds. The manager, while seemingly not there, somehow had the central rooms and kitchenette cleaned and stocked at all times. They could not have been more accomodating, because we booked the house, our ghost hunt had unlimited access, including the attic and basement. I highly recommend that when planning a Gettysburg trip do not gamble on your rooms, try and book at Tillie Pierce.

We had the most exciting time in Gettysburg this past weekend! July 9,10,11 2013, we stayed at the Tillie pierce house, this is our fourth time there, at the house, we love EVERYTHING about the "home", that is what it feels like to us and the Innkeeper makes you feel that comfy as well. We would encourage everyone to embrace the experience, not only on the battlefield but the whole community! Go for yourselves and feel the feel on your own because 'words' can't really do it for you! One piece of advice, get a professional tour guide for the battlefield, you won't be sorry.thank you Becky. Folks from cape may area, New Jersey

My wife and I stayed at this B&B back late Summer 2011. The manager informed us that it was active and we didn't know what she meant. Later that night just before 9 pm the manager asked if we'd mind if ghost hunters were in the house until 2 am...we didn't mind. Both my wife and I experienced weird things that night. We're not into lghosts or the paranormal at all! Our room was extremely hot all night and I struggled sleeping all night. My wife heard steps going up and down stairs over and over between 3 and 4 am. The room just felt weird! The next morning the manager stated that none of the ghost hunters were there past 2 am and no one was up. We stayed in the pink room
