  • We loved the tour and history of the farm. Nice family tour for all ages. Couldn't wait to get the inside tour. His cars in the garage were kept up pretty well, due to their age. Beautiful property....  more

  • This was an extremely interesting visit as I knew only a little about President Eisenhower. I came away with an insight into his character and style. The tour of the house is well worth it...

  • Beautiful beautiful beautiful. We were too late for an inside tour of the home but we got a great view of the exterior and it just is so well kept and you just feel the history on the ground. You can walk in the steps of world leaders that came to visit Ike and Mamie's home. Really can't say enough good things about this place!
  • We enjoyed our tour of the Eisenhower National Historical Site. The ranger gave a brief but very informative speech before allowing a self-guided tour of the home. It is always remarkable to experience history firsthand. After the house tour, you are permitted to experience other aspects of the site.
  • Stunning scenery at his home and farm. So much history that has been forgotten along with how personable President Eisenhower was. Grounds are kept up well as you can see in the photos. You would think he would come out and greet you to show you around. There is a guided tour of the house every hour. We skipped it this time to walk around the place. So much to see, you get lost looking at it all. You can see some of the cars and farm equipment he used when he lived there. You can learm about his award winning cattle and how he helped progress farming here. Parking is limited, so if full, it may be hard to stop by. There is a shuttle, but that costs a few dollars to take. If you can, plan an hour or so to see everything. It is a great stopping place to get away from Gettysburgs crowds for a bit and relax.
  • Eisenhower's farm is closed at this time because of covid and a shortage of workers. I drove to the house and peaked in the garage where his cars are. I saw the putting green and walked around the outside of the house. He had a windmill next to the house. The farm land was very well maintained. I didn't see any livestock.
  • My favorite place to visit while I was in Gettysburg. The house was well preserved. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable!
