Farm offers glimpse into president's life
Eisenhower National Historic Site is the home and farm of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield, the farm served as a weekend retreat and a meeting place for world leaders.
The Eisenhowers, who moved dozens of times and lived all over the world, considered this their first real home. The Eisenhower National Historic Site is open daily from 9 a.m. 5 p.m., except for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. The home, grounds, barns and cattle operation are available for public tours. Visitors can reach the site via a shuttle bus which departs from the Gettysburg National Military Park visitor center.
The home and farm have been preserved as they looked 50 years ago.
