Gettysburg Electric Map: And now, this summer in Hanover
Remember going down to Gettysburg to see the old Electric Map at the old Gettysburg Visitors Center in the old days? Now, those with Civil War interests will have a chance to see the old Electric Map in a new location – Hanover. It’s expected to open this summer, according to the Evening Sun in Hanover: Electric Map pieces fall into place. Owner Scott Roland sees it as a tourism play for Hanover. ‘If even 5 percent of the tourists who visited the map in Gettysburg pay to see it in Hanover, it could lead to a boom for all of the borough’s businesses,’ he told The Evening Sun. He estimated that 1/4 of Gettysburg visitors would visit the map. (See two photos of the map being lifted – and then settled – into its new Hanover home.) Also of interest: It soon will be the Hanover Electric Map.
