Eisenhower’s Birthplace–Denison, Texas

We are parked at a COE campground in Cartwright, OK, about 2-3 miles from the Texas border.

The other day we drove to the next town south to Denison, TX.  While looking around we saw signs directing us to Eisenhower’s birthplace, so we thought we’d take a look.

The house was rented by Eisenhower’s parents and they left Denison when he was 18 months old.

On the left of the house is a little garden with a large statue of Eisenhower as a soldier.

We didn’t tour the house but enjoyed the free museum with photos of Eisenhower throughout his career.  The museum is located in a period house and the light filtering through the Camellia vines on the porch was stunning.

We’ve enjoyed our stay on Lake Texoma…quiet….peacefully….just what we needed.

Remember, you are loved.

    Howdy B&J,
    The Mossmans look HAPPY; is that because they're not traveling with y'all, through ALL of the REPAIR places like last year?? I thought Jim's back was doing better; he sure is sitting sidewize in that pic.. Of course, your smile is 'lighting' up the whole place!!!
    Y'all are welcome to stop by the RunningStar Ranch and 'set a spell' on your way to the GATES!!
    Remember, Y'all are too, also!!!
