Tour Eisenhower National Historic Site on Presidents Day Weekend & Holiday

January 31, 2020

On Presidents Day weekend and holiday, Eisenhower National Historic Site is open for visitors to tour the Eisenhower home and grounds Saturday, Feb. 15 through Monday, Feb. 17, 2020.

The home and farm of our 34th President, the Eisenhower National Historic Site provides a personal look at the home life of Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower. Renovated in the early 1950s, the home served as a weekend getaway for the President and a meeting place for world leaders. Retiring to the farm in 1961, the Eisenhowers gifted the property to the federal government in 1967. The farm was designated as a National Historic Site in 1969.
