Eisenhower Nationakl Historic Site

Loved the tour of President Eisenhowers' home, which is preserved as he left it. A great insight into how this great man lived.

Eisenhower and his wife Mammie spent much of their lives here during his presidency and after. It is kept as it was when they lived there, everything original with minimal reproduction. It is inviting and one can see why they loved it so much. Well worth the $7 fee. The volunteer guides very knowledgable and helpful.

Me and my husband took a tour of the Eisenhower Home in October of last year. We both enjoyed touring the family home. It was absolutely beautiful. If ever in Gettysburg it's a must!!

You get tickets for the tour at the Gettysburg Battlefield Visitors Center. A short bus ride gets you to the Site. There was a guide that meets the bus and provides information on the Site. There is also a guide that greets you as you enter the house and talks about the living room. The house is very 1950s or... More

Visiting here gives everyone an insight into the family life of one of the most famous military and political leaders of any generation. This is, more than anything else, their own home rather than a shrine to greatness. From the pink towels and sheets in their closet to a large and impressive Rolodex that is on General Eisenhower's desk at... More

I cannot imagine visiting Gettysburg without carving time for the Eisenhower estate. It is like stepping back to a simpler quiter time virtually adjacent to the Southern end of the battlefield. The Eisenhowers bought this magnificent estate with its simple home as he left the military. It served as his escape during the presidency and his residence until his death.... More

Visiting the Eisenhower farm was a highlight of our visit to Gettysburg. I loved how it had been preserved just as the Eisenhowers had left it and found the tour to be very interesting.

We enjoyed our visit to the Eisenhower farm. Make sure you visit the barn area too! Learned a lot of interesting facts about the Eisenhower's.

Seeing the home of our former president was far more interesting than I expected. It really is worth taking time out of seeing the battlefields at Gettysburg to see the home and farm of President Eisenhower. Nearly everything is original, and the onsite guides are very helpful. One tour, about the secret service was very interesting. Being able to walk... More

We visited this with 30 scouts and adults as it was required to complete our planned program of events. Despite it not being as dramatic as a vast battlefield, it did hold the interest of our younger members and was of great interest to our adults. This is a relatively quick visit and the only way to access the site... More
