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.

  • Awesome little place. They refused to sell it to us and remove the building blocking the view of the ocean. I would not do what we did and take 2 infants and a toddler into this place. Our 3 year old did quite well though. Lots to see and learn.
  • A nicely detailed tour of the house and a complimentary bottle of water! Almost all of the furniture in the house was used by President Truman including a custom made poker table. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. No photos or videos are allowed in the house. Also no outside drinks.
