Day 3 - Eisenhower Farm, Adams County Winery, and Historic Fairfield Inn
The day started out with a trip out to President Eisenhower's Farm with a wonderful tour of his farm house, guest house and surrounding property. The youth were also treated to a special interpretation of the Secret Service and their role with Eisenhower and his family. After lunch at some local fast food joints, we took a trip out to Adams County Winery for a Concert. We had to cut the concert short due to a rain storm, but we dried off and headed to Historic Fairfield Inn and Restaurant. We explored the old historic Inn and then were treated to dinner and a magic show by Professor Joe Kerrigan.
