Welcome to the Eisenhower National Historic Site Travel Planner. Here you'll find everything you need to plan your visit, including directions, park facts, things to do, information on historical resources, educational programs, maps, and more. 

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.
