Can’t make it to Washington, DC, for the White House Egg Roll? Hop on down to Eisenhower National Historic Site in Gettysburg, PA, to participate in our first-ever Easter Egg Roll. Stop by Eisenhower National Historic Site from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 30, and enjoy games, a scavenger hunt, and most importantly, an egg roll. All events and activities can be completed on a rolling basis throughout the afternoon.

The tradition of the White House Egg Roll started under President Rutherford B. Hayes and has continued on and off since. World Wars, the Great Depression and global food shortages after World War II caused several presidents to forgo the egg roll. In 1953, the Eisenhowers moved into the White House and Mamie Eisenhower reignited the tradition.

Eisenhower National Historic Site hopes to capture the spirit of renewal and joy of springtime with the help of Destination Gettysburg, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Society, the Adams County Library and the Gettysburg Foundation.

The Eisenhower home will not be open for tours. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved to Monday, April 1, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If using your smartphone or GPS to get to the site, please use 250 Eisenhower Farm Road (off of Emmitsburg Road), Gettysburg, PA, as the address and follow signs to parking.
