Eisenhower National Historic Site

View an important and often-overlooked piece of state history! The home where Eisenhower lived before and after his presidency, and the site where many important Cold War era meetings took place. The house and (still working) farm give students an up-close look at the life of one of our most influential presidents, and guided tours such as Leadership and Dwight D. Eisenhower, Field Studies at the Eisenhower Farm, and Eisenhower and Khrushchev at Gettysburg, inform the visit with historical context. The museum collection encompasses farm objects, photos, 1950's pop culture and decor, and military items, that chronicle the lives of the Eisenhowers and the history of the farm.
