Authentic, is decorated as the Eisenhower's left it, not reproductions. Beautiful home, beautiful group grounds, and he has a golf green in the back yard! So glad we went to see it.

Where Eisenhower lived after being president. You can get a sense of how he wanted to live after being Supreme Commander and President. House just like it was when Ike and Mamie lived there. TOO bad the farm still isn't in use

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).
