Eisenhower National Historic Site
— National Park Service —Originally the barn's milk house, this building was established as an office for President Eisenhower's Secret Service detail in 1955. During the presidential years, one of the 8 - 10 agents who worked each shift would be stationed in the office to monitor the alarm control panel and radio communications equipment. The back room served as a firearms and ammunitions cache and was used by White House communication specialists who manned a plug-in switchboard, teletype machine, and microwave radio. Secured within a safe in the back room was the satchel containing nuclear codes that always accompanied the President.
