A few quick facts: Located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the presidential and retirement home of Dwight D. Eisenhower was established as a national historic site in 1967. Purchased by Eisenhower in 1950, the 189-acre farm sported a show herd of Angus cattle and served as a presidential retreat, temporary White House, and meeting place for world leaders. Located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield, the site today comprises 690 acres and is still maintained as a working farm.
