Boyhood Home Now Open for Tours

Abilene, KS– Tours of President Eisenhower’s boyhood home are once again available to the public. Extensive preservation work including exterior lead paint abatement and maintenance updates closed the home for several months. The project is now complete and guests are welcome to once again step back in time and see the home where our nation’s 34th President grew up.


“These repairs were necessary for both the preservation of this historic home and, more importantly, our ability to continue sharing this history for future generations,” states Library Director Dawn Hammatt.


Scheduled tours are available Tuesday through Sunday and are limited to 10 guests per time slot. Tickets may only be purchased onsite. This project was funded through a combination of federal and private funds from the Eisenhower Foundation. Visit for additional details on planning your visit.
