Adams County, known around the world for the American Civil War and President Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address, is known locally as a family community built on dedication, respect of the land, fresh air and relationships. We work hard and we play hard. We invite strangers into our community and our homes and we make them friends. The stories of Adams County are what make our destination special, we hope that you will discover people you wish to meet and places you just can't wait to see...
This is the story of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the farmer. It was his hope to leave a piece of land better than he found it. He cared about sustainable farming, just as our Adams County farmers do today. The Eisenhower National Historic Site is part of Adams County and the land is still farmed, much in the style of Eisenhower, by Sam and Wilbur Martin. Visit with Eisenhower, and Sam Martin, as we connect yesterday with today through the lives of our Adams County farmers.
