My Abilene

Trip Overview

November 14, 2019

Tour Description.

Discover the wild side of Abilene, the small Kansas town with a big history. This patriotic city prides itself on being the boyhood home of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the place where the cowboy boot was invented, but Abilene also has a history of being a rough cowtown with gunfights and historic cattle drives. First, step back in time upon entering the magnificently restored Seelye Mansion decorated with original furnishings from the 1904 St. Louis World Fair and Edison light fixtures. Enjoy a good old fashioned lunch before spending the afternoon exploring the newly renovated campus of the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. Visiting Eisenhower’s boyhood home and museum will provide a fascinating look into the life of the boy who grew up to become General of the U.S. Army and the 34th President of the United States.
