Eisenhower National Historic Site is the home and farm of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield, the farm served the President as a weekend retreat and a meeting place for world leaders. With its peaceful setting and view of South Mountain, it was a much-needed respite from Washington and a backdrop for efforts to reduce Cold War tensions.
Tour the President’s home, enjoy a self-guided walk around the farm, or join a park ranger for an exploration of 1950s Secret Service operations or a look back at WWII and Ike’s problems as Supreme Commander.
Children (ages 6-12) may become Junior Rangers by doing activities in the Junior Ranger booklet. New rangers are awarded a badge and certificate!
Shuttles from the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center must be taken to Eisenhower National Historic Site, unless otherwise noted.
