From the period TV set to the TV Trays, you have just walked into a 1950 moment. It is so authentic and full on interesting info about President/General Eisenhower.

This was an interesting side tour while at Gettysburg. The house is like a time capsule for when the Eisenhowers lived there. My son and I do presidential history so this was a great stop.

I think they were about $ 7.50 p/p. Can be purchased at the battleground visitor center. There is a shuttle bus from there (no private cars allowed at the farm).
