In Boone, Iowa, a small frame house with a restored summer kitchen contains furniture, photographs, and memorabilia concerning the early life of the wife of the twenty-fifth president of the United States.

There is Doud family furniture, including the bed in which Mamie was born. The lower-level museum and library feature early items and memorabilia of Mamie’s life after she married Dwight David Eisenhower.
