Adventures in Abilene
Hop in the van, we’re headed to Abilene to check out the historic Seelye Mansion and the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home!
We’ll start the day at the beautiful Seelye Mansion, named as one of the “8 Wonders of Kansas-Architecture.” It is like a time capsule! Most of the home’s furnishings were purchased at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. The furnishings cost more than the $55,000 that was spent building the
11,000 square foot home. The home feature the original Edison light fixtures and Tiffany-style mantel. Frank Lloyd Wright suggested remodeling the interior in the 1920s. The home was featured on the History Channel’s Mysteries at the Mansion. Visitors even get to bowl on the 1904 Box
Ball alley, which was purchased at the World’s Fair.
We’ll eat lunch at a well-known restaurant: The Hitching Post Restaurant and Saloon. And then we’ll spend the afternoon exploring the renovations and ALL-NEW EXHIBITS at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum and experiencing Ike and Mamie’s story in their own words. One of
Abilene’s most iconic attractions, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year. Whether you’re a WWII and history enthusiast, a fan of Ike or simply exploring Kansas, the Dwight D. Eisenhower campus will leave you in awe.
And don’t forget to take a selfie with the 11-foot bronze
statue of General Eisenhower!
