Truman Little White House, Key West

4.6
#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Key West
A taste of presidential history, Truman Little White House offers guided tours of rooms filled with original furnishings and memorabilia. This house, originally built in 1890 for officers of the local naval base, served as Truman's winter residence for a total of 175 days during about a dozen vacations. Though many of Truman's private possessions still lie scattered about the rooms, he was not the only notable figure to spend time in the house. Thomas Edison lived here during World War I, and presidents John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton used the house for government functions. The interior is open for guided tours only, but you can walk around the surrounding botanical gardens on your own.

  • Really enjoyed this very interesting. Full of history and very good guide. Has lots to see that was used by President Truman and others after. Well worth a visit. Recommend to go there if you're in the keys
