We visited this site several years ago when our now 17 year old could still do the special program for young children and it was a warm late summer day. The day we went this time was blustery, but the house was decorated for Christmas and you could just tell that people really "lived" here and it was not just set up for show. We still walked to the barns despite the cold. Ike walked these same roads and paths!! We even saw some of the angus cattle raised there today. The reception center was small, a short film about Ike was very interesting, but the best part was that books written by Ike and Mamie were sold there. This is true American history and it was fascinating. Tour guides were very informative. A must-see in Gettysburg.
