We Like Ike! – Abilene | Oh, the Places They Go!

We enjoyed Amanda’s Cafe for an hour or so before heading to the reason for our visit to Abilene.  This town is the boyhood home of Dwight Eisenhower, and is the site of his Presidential Library.  The library is on the grounds of a site that also has a Visitors Center, a museum, and a chapel where Ike, his wife Mamie, and their first born son (who died in infancy) are buried.  It is all located around his family’s home, which is kept in the same condition it was in when his mother passed away in 1946.
