The Gettysburg Times posted an interesting article about the extra care construction companies take when building in the area.
“Everybody is just a little bit more careful when they do road work or projects around here, because it’s Gettysburg,” says Borough Manager Florence Ford, previously of nearby Cumberland Township.
“Any time we put shovel to the dirt, we take our time,” says Ford.
Procedures are in place so that when contractors excavate an unexpected Civil War relic — or even bones — work stops immediately, pending further inspection.
