The President's Home
by P. Buckley Moss

The President's Home 
  • President and Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower owned only one home in their lifetime and it's right here in Gettysburg.
  • President Eisenhower's connection to the town began in 1915 when he visited the battlefield with his West Point class.
  • In 1918, during World War I, Eisenhower commanded Camp Colt, which was located on the field of Pickett's Charge.
  • After his service as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II, Mr. and Mrs. Eisenhower came back to Gettysburg in 1950 and purchased the 189-acre farm adjoining the battlefield.
  • In 1952 Eisenhower won the election as 34th President of the United States...in1955 their home became a temporary White House while President Eisenhower recuperated from a heart attack.
  • The Eisenhower’s loved Gettysburg! Ike enjoyed raising his prize-winning Angus cattle (which by the way are still raised on the property), an avid golfer, he even had his own golf tee. And yes he loved to spend time in the sunroom reading, painting, and entertaining guests. Mamie loved to garden and was involved with the local garden club. They both were known to shop locally!
