Eisenhower National Historic Park

When my father was president, he developed the habit of bringing visiting world leaders to the farm. Such informality, he reasoned, would make them feel at home.
John Eisenhower

Walk in the footsteps of presidents, prime ministers and kings as you follow the path through the heart of the Eisenhower farm. Eisenhower originally bought the farm as his retirement home, but during his two terms as President he used it as a retreat from Washington's pressures and as a temporary White House. Believing that the relaxed farm atmosphere encouraged free discussion, the President treated every visiting world leader to a tour of the farm.

Trail Information
