Boyhood Home of Dwight D. Eisenhower
A typical nineteenth century home, the Eisenhower family moved into this house in 1898 when Dwight was eight. The lot was roughly 2 1acres. Dwight, famously known as Ike, lived in the home until he was 20 when he left for West Point. The house is furnished with original pieces from David and Ida Eisenhower. Mrs. Eisenhower lived here until her death in 1946. The house remains on its original site and was given to the Eisenhower Foundation by her sons. In 1966 it was given to the Federal Government. Since it has been open, over 2 million visitors have toured the home.
