Dwight David Eisenhower's Home

Following morning services, we drove to Denison, Texas to see the birthplace of Dwight D. Eisenhower. It was very nice, they had a video that gave military history for President Eisenhower to his success at Normandy, then to his presidency. Several historical societies have worked together to re-store and maintain the home. Very cool! Granny said when Jon's dad was stationed in Colorado, Eisenhower came to town to dedicate the new military school, which is now the Air Force Academy. She said they sat on their front porch and waved as he went by in the parade!
