Eisenhower National Historic Site

— National Park Service —

Cattle housed in the show barn (in front of you) lived in bovine luxury. Designed in 1957 for Eisenhower's Angus show herd, the barn included a heated office and washroom. The washroom gave herdsmen a warm place to groom cattle even during the coldest winter.

During the summer, cattle rested in the barn sheltered from the sun and cooled by breezes through special ventilation doors under each window. The Eisenhower Farms provided only the best for the show herd.
