The Eisenhower National Historic Site invites visitors to celebrate the holiday season with a festive tour of Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower’s home and farm in Gettysburg. The Eisenhower home will be decorated for Christmas through Dec. 31, 2019.

Visitors have an opportunity to see Mamie’s holiday touches throughout the home including wreaths, poinsettias, mistletoe and the living room Christmas tree. The dining room table is set for Christmas dinner, while the Eisenhower’s Christmas records play in the background.

During December, the Eisenhower’s nativity dioramas, which were exhibited at the White House during Eisenhower’s presidency, are on display in the lobby of the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center.
