You're already in Gettysburg, might as well! It's the only home the Eisenhower's owned while they were married. President Eisenhower was an expert on the Battle of Gettysburg and served at Camp Colt during WWI. They also have the fireplace mantle from the White House...More

Highlight of my trip to Gettysburg was visiting the Eisenhower's retirement home. Brought back memories of the late sixties when Julie Nixon married David Eisenhower (grandson of Dwight and Mamie).

You can only visit via shuttle from The Gettysburg NPS Visitor Center. It is $9 for the ticket. The shuttle takes about ten minutes through beautiful farm/battlefield. A ranger meets the shuttle and gives a very good history on Eisenhower and the farm/house. Then you...More

This was a last minute decision but so well worth it. Having grown up in Kansas, we hadn't realized Eisenhower had a Pennsylvania connection. Tickets were available at the main Museum Visitors Center and the buses to/from made this tour very accessible. After a short...More

The house is "frozen in time" and very interesting. Be sure to go to the bookstore where there's a film. The barn area has cars on display but you only see them through a window so they are easy to miss. They have lots of...More

A visit to Eisenhower's home is an interesting addition to a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. The guides are knowledgeable and it is nice to see the home well-preserved and with original furnishings etc. I'm sure it is of much more interest to US citizens,...More

I’m partial to Eisenhower, so seeing his Gettysburg home was awesome. It was filled with almost all his original furniture and artifacts. Great place, serene, important historical significance and an ability to see it at your own pace makes this worth your while.

Definitely worth the time to visit to see where our 34th President decided to make his home after retiring from the military. If your a history buff, this should be included in your itinerary. Allow an extra couple of hours to your day if you...More

I think they were about $ 7.50 p/p. Can be purchased at the battleground visitor center. There is a shuttle bus from there (no private cars allowed at the farm).
