Located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield, the home and farm of President Dwight D. and Mamie Eisenhower served as a weekend retreat and a meeting place for world leaders. The 690 acre site includes four farms, three of which were used by President Eisenhower for his show herd of Black Angus cattle.
A visit to the site begins with a 15 minute orientation tour of the grounds and farm operation. Visitors can then tour the home with its original furnishings, the grounds including the garage which still houses the Eisenhowers' jeep, golf carts, and station wagon, the skeet range and the farm.
A multi-media exhibit including a 10-minute video, celebrates Eisenhower's military career, military leadership in WWII and popular presidency; and the exuberant, trend-setting First Lady Mamie.
