Tablet ("...expecting to find all dead.")


(2-07) The George George House at 237 Steinwehr Avenue. Similarities of stone construction with the nearby Dobbin house suggest that this one-story structure was built before 1800. In 1863 it was owned by Captain John Myers, whose extant house on Baltimore Street later became the National Soldiers Orphans Homestead. George George was the tenant living here during the time of the battle. The house is thought to be the building where the body of slain Union General John Reynolds was taken around noon on July 1. It is now the home of Servant's Old Tyme Photo's where you can have your picture taken in period costume
