President Truman spent 175 days in Key West, and visiting the "Little White House," inside what had once been Navy property, you can see what drew him there.

We went to the Truman House because it was pouring rain and we were staying so close. I didn't expect it to be as interesting as it was. Rory gave us an excellent tour adding colorful stories without excessive talking. I'm so glad we did this tour and would highly recommend

We went on the tour of the little white house, not knowing what to expect. Our guide was knowledgeable, had a sense of humor and was able to answer questions. We enjoyed our learning experience.

We loved learning about the history of the house as well as learning more about President Truman. Jimmy was our host and was so charming and actually was the highlight of our tour! He was so informative and passionate about the history and shared some awesome personal stories about his own encounters with the President as a child.

This place has a free part of the house. You can take the tour, but also look around the gardens as well.

We loved our tour! Jeremy was full of witty stories and I want to learn more about Truman. The tour was not too long...a big plus for me. Furnishings were original. The film was short and well done. One of my favorite tours ever.

I visited this site a couple years ago with a friend and determined to take my husband there on this trip. The tour was very informative and was presented in an entertaining way. I learned even more about the Trumans on this visit and my husband was delighted with the tour.

It was interesting to hear how this property became known as the Little White House as well as actually touring all the rooms on the guided tour. So much history happened there. Thanks for covering all that I should have learned in school but didn't.
