The Meade School was designed in the Richardson Romanesque style in 1896. At the dedication in 1897, the president of the local school board declared that the board had "sought to illustrate in this building something of the high character, of the dignity and of the usefulness of the Public School system, and to give to the children of Gettysburg all the advantages that other towns enjoy."
The Meade School was the borough high school until September 1909, after which it became an elementary school.
The current owners, Pete and Liz Monahan, have carefully preserved the architectural integrity of this grand building. Guests of the Federal Pointe Inn will experience its rich past while enjoying all its modern amenities.
