Lord Nelson's Gallery is located in the James Gettys Hotel building, one half block from Lincoln Square on Chambersburg Street (Rte. 30 West) in downtown Gettysburg, PA. Lord Nelson's first opened its doors in March of 1990. What evolved from an import shop selling Guatemalan goods, Belgian lace and chocolates, Alaskan carvings and Black Hills Gold jewelry, now specializes in Eastern Indian/Frontier Art—art depicting the 18th century frontier—as well as wildlife art and gifts. The store was named after Nelson, our black Lab who greeted Lord Nelson's customers until 1996.

Whether you're simply browsing, looking for wildlife related art and gift items, or are interested in historical 18th century art and books dealing with the Eastern Woodland Indian and frontiersman, Lord Nelson's should not disappoint you. Should you walk into Lord Nelson's with the intent of finding Civil War art, you have come to the wrong place. The first referral for Civil War items would be to visit the Gettysburg Frame Shop, just a few doors up the street.

If you have any questions about the gallery, don't hesitate to email us.

George Lower

George was born and raised in Gettysburg and now lives just 8 miles outside of town with his wife Audrey. They have one daughter, Stephanie, who was involved with the opening of Lord Nelson's in 1990 and had managed the adjoining James Gettys Hotel.

Originally making his appearance on Chambersburg Street in 1960 when he opened his barber shop, George has accomplished many things since those days. Along with providing haircuts, George began selling Civil War artifacts through the barber shop. In 1972, he left the barbering business and began dealing in the artifacts full-time as The Gettysburg Sutler. He was perhaps the world's largest dealer in period items at the time, and for many years was a leading figure in the Civil War arena. In 1985, George officially retired and continued with his favorite hobby full-time—fishing. Overall, George spent more than ten years as a flyfishing guide for Iliaska Lodge, one of Alaska's premier fishing lodges and can keep you entertained for weeks with his endless knowledge of fishing and related stories. As he left the fishing business, George became more and more involved with Lord Nelson's, where he now spends most of his time. In reality, when George is not at Lord Nelson's, it's pretty safe to say he's out fishing.
