A Gettysburg businessman wants to bring slot machines to the Pennsylvania town made famous by a bloody Civil War battle and the presidential speech that followed it.
David LeVan and a group of unidentified investors are seeking a license that would allow for no more than 500 slot machines in a facility. Only hotel guests or passholders would be able to access the machines, according to license requirements.
The Gaming Control Board in 2006 rejected a LeVan-backed project because of its proximity to the Gettysburg battlefield. This time, LeVan is eying the Eisenhower Inn and Conference Center in Cumberland Township, Adams County.
