“Fascinating!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

We have always been fans of Harry Truman, and visiting this summer home gives real insight into this man who never went to college yet proved to be an outstanding president. This simplicity of this place is in marked contrast to Hyde Park (Roosevelt) and even the Johnson ranch in Texas.

“This is what makes Key West Outstanding - take the Tour”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

If you love Key West, love the history of it,and want to go back in time when even a President of the United States found this gem of the ocean the best place on earth, go on this tour. You will be drawn back to the days in history, to the begining of the Truman Annex. We take this tour every few years just to understand why we love spending months here. Just go, enjoy, let your mind listen, it is in the ranks of Zack Taylor State Beach, Hemingway House, and. the dozen other sites here. Don't miss this one
