Very nice bus trip to location with informative narrative on ride over. Both Park Service Rangers at House/Grounds really knew their history and kept us guessing at different things to make the tour very interesting!

It was interesting to tour the home. It was rather modest, when you think of the former President living here. The show barn was worth the walk out.

Loved that this farm house is still furnished as it was when the Eisenhower's lived there. One gets a great sense of their daily lives, and it feels like they're simply in the next room.

I think they were about $ 7.50 p/p. Can be purchased at the battleground visitor center. There is a shuttle bus from there (no private cars allowed at the farm).
