Barlow Knoll (formerly Blocher's Knoll) is a hill on the Gettysburg Battlefield that was the location of the Battle of Gettysburg, First Day charge of Gordon's Brigade that succeeded in breaking the Union line. The "Old Alms House Cemetery" is located on the side of the hill, and the hill is named after Francis C. Barlow.
In 1884, a procession was held to the knoll for the Barlow monument dedication, and the 1898 tract was owned by Calvin Gilbert before being transferred to the War Department. In 1911, the knoll had a quarry, and Barlow Knoll was the site of Red Cross station no. 5 during the 1913 Gettysburg reunion. A statue of Barlow planned in 1920 was unveiled in 1922 and in 1932 a flagpole was erected at the site.
