This huge bust of Eisenhower is well done, and stirs patriotic feelings for this Denison born president. It is located right next to the Frontier Village and is a quick stop if you are in the area.

We were here as a group for a family reunion. This is a beautiful memorial to Pres. Eisenhower---the whole area is very nice. We also rode around the park area and enjoyed the Frontier village. Very informative also.

When I visited, there was a ceremony honoring veterans. It was a very moving ceremony; I was especially interested because my Dad is one of the veterans who has a stone paver with his name and service information.

What can you say about History, a must see for historians! There is a state park close by bearing the same name for all of your camping needs as well. Excellent area to have a vacation

I went to admire the bust and revisit the bricks we bought for our military family members. The bust welcomes all who drive north on Hwy 75. It is a great entrance to a forward moving community.
