The Springhouse at the Josiah Benner farm in Gettysburg, Pa., was used as temporary cover for skirmishers of both armies and would have provided water and "refrigerated" food for wounded in the hospitals of the Benner house and barn. Until the National Park Service purchased the property in 2011, the springhouse was in grave danger of collapsing. Last winter park staff completed emergency stabilization on the structure which included archeology, and rebuilding several of the walls.
