We hadn't heard or read about the Harry S. Truman Little White House before we went to Key West but we are very glad that we took the tour. Viewing the home was like stepping back in time. Our tour guide Tom was charming, giving us an historical overview of the Truman's life and times in a way that was both entertaining and informative.

Truman's 'Little White House" was an unexpected treat full of history and anecdotes. Tucked in the middle of a lovely gated residential community, a beautifully restored little gem saved from ruin. The tour takes you throughout the building displaying bits of original furnishings and objects and shares an interesting glimpse into the off duty life of a President, including Truman's poker table! If you get Eric for a guide you are really in for a treat but I would guess that most of the guides are almost as informative and pleasant and easy to understand.

If you like history and mansion like homes, the Truman house is great. Harry Truman's huge poker table is worth the visit to see. Antiques and woodwork outstanding.
