Ike, Gettysburg, and the Cold War

Eisenhower National Historic Site is the home and farm of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield, the farm served the President as a weekend retreat and a meeting place for world leaders. With its peaceful setting and view of South Mountain, it was a much needed respite from Washington D.C. and a backdrop for efforts to reduce Cold War tensions.

Daily schedule

Site hours are thirty minutes before sunrise to thirty minutes after sunset.
