10. Adams County Independent: Beecher property to be sold to Gettysburg National Military Park on 1 Jun 1917 in Gettysburg, Adams, PA. 12 BATTLEFIELD TROLLEY WILL SOON BE HISTORY
The line of the Gettysburg Railway company from Gettysburg to Little Round Top is about to become a matter of history. Through the efforts of State Senator C. William Beales, ex-congressman, the right of way will be bought by the government for the national military park.
An amendment to the army bill which has been signed by President Wilson authorizes the purchase for $30,000. The acquisition of the right of way by the government was sought by Beales as a congressman during the last session, through the medium of a bill he introduced. During the rush at the close of the session, however, the measure failed to pass the senate.
Later, at Beales request, the action was authorized in the amendment introduced in the senate by Boies Penrose, its interests were cared for in the house by Congressman-at-large Thomas S. Crago, who is a member of the committee on military affairs.
The abandonment of the one-track line to Little Round Top is a step which has been sought for some time by residents of Gettysburg. Before the advent of the automobile as a means of transportation over the battlefield, the railway company saw its palmiest days.
Recently, however, cars over the line became so infrequent, it is said, that it became necessary for the borough council to compel the company to run a car thru the winter months.
Following is the provision of the Penrose amendment to the army bill: "That the secretary of war is hereby authorized and directed to acquire, by purchase, for the Gettysburg national military park, the Gettysburg Railway company, (the rails, ties and superstructure of same to remain the property of the Gettysburg Railway company and to be removed by the said company as required by the secretary of war), said right of way embracing the tracts known as the Amos Leister tracts, the F. G. Pfeiifer tracts, the Jacob Benner estate tract, the Simon J. Codori tract, the Jacob Masonheimer tract, the Annie E. Beecher tract, the Rosanna E. Wible tract, the James W. Timbers tract, the S. W. Crawford tracts, the William T. Tipton tract, the Calvin P. Krise tract, the George Bushman tract and the Peter D. Swisher tract, within the limits of the battlefield of Gettysburg, and within the limits of the Gettysburg national military park, for the sum of $30,000, that being the amount awarded in condemnation proceedings in the eastern district of Pennsylvania, which sum is hereby appropriated and made immediately available for such purchase."
