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.

  • 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
  • Would have loved to have visited here but our national park pass was not honored notwithstanding this site is overseen by the National Parks Service! The old woman at the ticket counter smugly stated that the shuttle fees of $36 for the four of us were how they made all their money and that nothing is free. Gee lady, we paid $80 for a yearly pass for four that's honored at every single national park in America (including shuttle buses) except for THIS one so it's not like we're asking for a handout! Add in that we're a military family! Sorry Ike, we love you but very clear that a small segment of the National Parks Service are greedily exploiting your legacy and stabbing military families in the back. What a disgusting shame....
