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.

  • We came to Gettysburg to see the battlefield and had extra time so we went to this site. The only way there is by bus, and we had to wait an hour for the overcrowded ride. They then cram you into the ...  more »

  • People forgot that this is next to Gettysburg National Park, this is someone's home and it is nice visit to complement your visit to Gettysburg. I think we spent 3 hours here, which is kind of amazing given that it is essentially walking through a house. The old time vehicles are great. There was a ranger talk on a certain period of Eisenhower's life, which was excellent. Great presentation. You buy your ticket at the Gettysburg National Park and you ride a bus over. There is no cafe here. Restrooms are somewhat old. I might come back with different family members, but not just by myself.
  • Very cool historic place! Great definable to add to a Gettysburg visit, and well worth the time.
  • Self guided tour of the Eisenhower home. It was interesting. Little children may not agree. Rangers OK site seemed knowledgeable and friendly, so if you have any questions feel free to ask them.
  • Nice stop over and learn about one of the great American president.
  • Very interesting to see how a president lived back in the day. Good tour. Friendly staff. Grounds were kept nicely. If your in Gettysburg, it's definitely worth the time.
