State park to celebrate Eisenhower visit 60 years agoPublished 10:51am Friday, September 7, 2012
Many will gather at Glendalough State Park this weekend to celebrate the 60th anniversary of a visit from Dwight D Eisenhower.
The visit was one of the stops on Eisenhower’s 1952 campaign tour through Minnesota. On Saturday, Glendalough will host a short presentation remembering Eisenhower’s visit.
The 11 a.m. presentation will be followed by a tour of the Glendalough lodge where Ike stayed.
Although the program is free, visitors will be required to purchase a $5 one-day vehicle permit to enter the park.
