This is a great additional site to visit when in the Gettysburg area. Nice look into the home of one our America's great presidents, who had a love of Gettysburg as well.

This historical sight is worth your time when you visit Gettysburg. You will be bussewd from the Visitor Center -a quick, convienent ride to the Eisenhower Farm. Take your time and make sure you visit all the areas - walk out to the old barn/farm area. It is also great for kids. Give yourself approx 21/2 hours for this visit.

I traveled to the Eisenhower National Historic Site with my husband this past October. The tour bus left from the visitor center and took you to the Eisenhower farm. Once there, a guide talked about the history of the farm. Next, we went through the house where another guide talked to us about the first room which was furnished with lavish gifts from around the world. After that, we were free to tour the house at our leisure with a self paced pamphlet that described each room. I was very surprised to find the rest of the house was very modest in decor and furnishings. The Eisenhower's home looked as though any modern family of the day could have comfortably lived there. It certainly did not look like a former President's house. It was interesting and gave you a understanding of the Eisenhower family. After viewing the house, you are also free to explore the grounds and the black Angus cattle farm that is still in operation.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed touring the Eisenhower compound. I was very impressed that they lived very simply. The countryside was beautiful and be sure to walk to the barn where President Eisenhower kept his prize cattle.
