Gettysburg is a borough located in Adams County, Pennsylvania, USA, of which it is the county seat. As of the 2000 census, the borough had a total population of 7,490.

The Borough of Gettysburg was founded in 1786. It is the county seat of Adams County, which was formed in 1800 from the western section of York County. Gettysburg sits in the shadow of South Mountain, eight miles west of the town, and is framed by Marsh Creek to the west/southwest and Rock Creek to the east/southeast. In 1830, Gettysburg had a population of 1,473. By 1840 it had grown to 1,908, and in 1860 roughly 2,400 people resided in the town. Many rich farms surrounded the town, and various industries thrived. An early history of Adams County stated: "The inhabitants are industrious and enterprising, many of whom are devoted to mechanical pursuits, and partucularly to the manufacture of carriages of every description, a branch of business which has been commenced here since 1817." ---"The History and Topography of Dauphin, Cumberland, Franklin, Bedford, Adams, and Perry Counties" (Lancaster City, PA: Gilbert Hills, 1846), p. 527.

Gettysburg was also known for its institutions of higher learning, namely the Lutheran Theological Seminary, founded in 1825; and Pennsylvania College (now Gettysburg College), which began operating in 1827.

Many roads radiate from Gettysburg, providing hub-like access to Baltimore (52 miles), Harrisburg (38 miles), Carlisle (30 miles), Frederick and Hagerstown, Maryland (25 and 30 miles, respectively), and Washington, D.C. (60 miles). Today the town is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Philadelphia via the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Business Route 15.
