Eisenhower National Historic Site is the former home of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. As you drive toward the house, notice the 50 spruce trees that line the road to represent the 50 states. Inside, you'll see furniture and decor that was present when the Eisenhowers still lived here, as well as artifacts that honor the president's legacy. A successful cattle operation is managed on the farmland, and a tour of the working ranch is included in the admission price. A shuttle bus from the nearby Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center is included in your admission fee.

Eisenhower National Historic Site reviews
Enjoyed the history of visiting the outside of the home of a former president. Due to Covid, there were no visits inside the home. Instead of a tour bus, you were able to drive onto the property... more »
Neat farm on the outside - wish the inside had been open for tours but still working on lifting Covid restrictions at the time of our visit. more »
Really neat and very helpful guides. The guide John is one of the more easygoing and very patient guides I have spoken to. Great for father son time. Definitely recommend for the person you love who enjoys hands-on history
I enjoyed stepping into the past. It is a beautiful property. I'm so glad I live in the present... no air conditioning in the house. There is air conditioning in the gift shop. Additionally, there is quite a bit of walking you can do if you desire. The bus tour is as long as you want to make it. You are not required to leave with the group you arrived with as long as you leave before the last bus of the day.
