While in Denison we stopped here to see Ike's birthplace. It is a small park & museum but was really nice. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and about Ike and his family.

Very friendly desk staff. Watched informative video for free and all the exhibits in the visitor center are free. We didn't pay for the tour only because of time constraints.

Nowhere near the charm of Eisenhower's house in PA, but very nicely kept, still a great piece of history.
