Experience Abilene's history from its early beginning as a wild cowtown, the boyhood home of President Dwight D. Eisenhower to present day elegance. A one-hour guided tour sharing the history and historical sites of the town at the end of the Chisholm Trail. The Trail was the driving force in creating the permanent town of Abilene in the 1860s and 1870s. Please call for dates & times of the trolley tours. We also have a brochure with most of the same houses, so you can enjoy at your own pace.
