Did this tour with my two teenage daughters and we all really enjoyed it. Staff was friendly and George our tour guide made it very fun and interesting. So much better than the Hemingway house tour and no smell of cat urine.

This is part of an old naval station. Now it is a residential gated neighborhood of houses and townhomes. The "Little White House" is in the middle. Truman used this as a vacation respite from the stresses of the job. Very unassuming place. In fact...More
