Eisenhower National Historic Site

Eisenhower National Historic Site

Located near Gettysburg Battlefield, this site was the home of the 34th President, Dwight Eisenhower.

It served as the weekend retreat and meeting place with world leaders for President Dwight Eisenhower. Visitors can begin with a 15 minute orientation tour which shows how the site was used by Eisenhower. Also available is a tour of the home on the site, where little has changed since Eisenhower and his wife, Mamie, lived there. Visitors who wish to explore on their own can take self-guided tours of the grounds, which includes the President's putting green and garage, or explore his farm or the skeet range. Lastly, the Reception Center holds exhibits which trace Eisenhower's life from his boyhood in Abilene through his retirement.

We hope you enjoy our work.
