Fodor's Review

The Eisenhower National Historic Site was the country-estate residence of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who bought it in 1950. He and his wife used it as a weekend retreat and a meeting place for world leaders. From 1961 until his death in 1969 it was the Eisenhowers' full-time residence. The brick-and-stone farmhouse is preserved in 1950s style. The farm adjoins the battlefield and is administered by the Park Service, which sells daily ticketed tours only on a first-come, first-served basis at the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center.
