Historic Site Tourist Spot
Eisenhower National Historic Site is the former home of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. As you drive toward the house, notice the 50 spruce trees that line the road to represent the 50 states. Inside, you'll see furniture and decor that was present when the Eisenhowers still lived here, as well as artifacts that honor the president's legacy. A successful cattle operation is managed on the farmland, and a tour of the working ranch is included in the admission price. A shuttle bus from the nearby Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center is included in your admission fee.

  • It was pretty neat to see the home of a former president. It shows that they are people too, but their job is to protect and lead our country. Also, I thought it was cool to sit on the lawn ;)
  • A very nice historical site something to go see if you haven't been there.
  • Love the site, just hate having to be tied down to the bus schedule. Could spend hours here exploring the grounds and the farm. Most people overlook the park because they're all into the gettysburg experience, but they're forgetting that history was shaped in gettysburg not just by the civil war, but by the man who lived and governed here nearly 100 years later.
  • Fascinating, it was frozen in time... worth a visit if you are interested in history
  • Absolutely loved the peace and serenity this piece of property holds. Loved it!
