_Our next stop was up to the farm of President and Mrs. Eisenhower. The farm is located adjacent to the Valley Forge National Park so it gave us the opportunity to see both in a single day trip. The President had always wanted to get back to farming following WWII but with a number of delays it wasn’t until just before he ran for the Presidency that they fulfilled their dream. As it turned out, it was a wonderful place to escape too and entertain international guests.
_One guest that really liked it there was the Soviet President Krushev. He made sure to visit the farm twice and was looking for at least one more. One thing I didn’t know about Eisenhower was that he had always wanted to paint and while we were there we saw about 10 paintings and drawings hanging on the walls of their home. One of these was this painting of a young Mexican man.
