Want to visit Eisenhower National Historic Site, but you aren't sure how?

It's easier than ever before! Visitors may now drive directly to Eisenhower NHS and follow signs for on-site parking. A few important things to know on how to get here:

  • Use 250 Eisenhower Farm Rd, Gettysburg, PA, for GPS, or follow the directions on the map below. Visitors should access the site from the main entrance on Emmitsburg Rd.
  • The roads at Eisenhower National Historic Site are historic and were not designed with modern buses, RVs, and trailers in mind. There are tight turns and narrow openings that may present safety hazards for you and your vehicle. Do not bring your trailer, RV, or bus to Eisenhower NHS without prior approval.
  • Visitors entering the site from Emmitsburg Road might be confused by some historic signage installed when the Eisenhower's lived here. Please know that you are welcome to drive in and enter the site. Secret Service agents haven't been posted in the guard huts for quite awhile now! Come on in, follow the signage for on-site parking, and explore the grounds that Ike and Mamie called home.
  • Lastly, parking on-site is for individual POVs and is limited in overall quantity. Those wishing to visit with a group should contact us here at least two weeks in advance about reservations and booking a tour.
A map titled Driving and Parking Directions shows a white and yellow map of driving directions to Eisenhower National Historic Site.
