Eisenhower was the last great President, and this house/farm exemplifies the relaxed man he was, with examples of his paintings, intimate photos, and possessions, a brief but informative film of his career in the Army and politics. You have to get a ticket and shuttle bus from the main NPS Gettysburg Visitor Centre, but the bus driver has some interesting comments to make; then a park ranger welcomes you to the Farm , and another to the House. Then you are free to tour on own which is very good. The President had a prize winning herd of angus and how he cared for them is well explained in the second farm and barn. We liked the limos, and secret service office. A really worthwhile place to take children. A President who had no soldiers killed on his watch; fought no wars; and balanced the budget with full employment. Why has no successor achieved these fine accomplishments? A great man.
