We love seeing these places. The visitor center was very well done with a nice 7 minute movie on Ike! The gentleman working was friendly & answered any and all questions. Lovely job on the home. Wish the gardens were in bloom.

Had the chance to visit the birthhouse of President Eisenhower in Denison, TX. Ike was President when I was born so I've always considered him "my President". Very interesting location with helpful guides. I highly reccomend a visit.
