Just stopped to see the location and the house. Used this stop to complete history of the Eisenhowers -- I had been to the Dwight D. Eisenhower Museum and Library in Abilene, KS and the Eisenhower Farm in Gettysburg, PA

You pay the tour guide located inside the house. Tour the house, lower level and see Mamie's car and uncle Joel's car in the garage.
