Hoke-Codori House, 44 York St.

This house built by Michael Hoke in ca. 1788 is the oldest building in Gettysburg. Hoke purchased one of the first three deeds sold by James Getty on November 30, 1787 and immediately began construction of this sturdy stone structure. In 1843 it was purchased by Nicholas Codori, a local butcher, who was living here in July 1863. Codori is best known for his farm situated along the Emmitsburg Road where Confederate Generals George Pickett's and Johnston Pettigrew's divisions were repulsed in their attempt to break the center of the Union line on July 3rd, 1863. Now the home of the Brafferton Inn.

A Bullet still in the mantel of the fireplace up stairs in what was the boys room during the battle. From the story I was told, that one or more of the boys were peaking out the window either before, during or after the battle when I solder spotted someone in the window and shot thinking he was aiming at a sniper.

In 1786 an elegant fieldstone house was constructed and Gettysburg was born. More than 75 years later, in July of 1863, the town exploded in civil conflict. As Union troops passed the old stone house on York Street, shots snapped the smoldering heat and shattered the glass in an upstairs window. A bullet lodged in the mantel where it remains today. As the battle raged, the Catholic church offered its building to the care of the wounded, and services moved to the second floor at 44 York Street. The old stone house, now the Brafferton Inn, remains a sanctuary to this day. 

The Inn has fourteen guest bedrooms, including five suites, each with private bath and individual air conditioning. Seven of the guest rooms and a sitting area are across a covered atrium in the 19th century brick carriage house adjoining the original building. All rooms are furnished with the 18th and 19th century family antiques and are graced with such features as high ceilings, elaborate stencils, and family portraits. The bountiful Adams County orchards provide fresh fruit for our seasonal breakfast specialties, including peaches and cream French toast and homemade blueberry pancakes. The dining room's encircling folk art mural was filmed by ABC TV for a feature about the artist Virginia Jacobs McLaughlin.

The Brafferton Inn, a nationally recognized 18th century restoration, is an historic building full of grace and charm. Come step back in time and experience Gettysburg from one of her oldest homes. Bill and Maggie look forward to welcoming you and assuring a comfortable stay at the Inn. They will help with suggestions for visiting the battlefields and other activities in the area as well as with securing reservations at local restaurants.
