Did not realize that Truman had a Summer White House here in Key West. For top security phone calls, he used a phone booth inside the house.

Did our own walking tour from cruise ship, down front street toward southernmost marker, amend return via DuVal street. Saw a sign with Harry Truman name but not a house like in pictures.....must have been on wrong street. Started to rain so we continued on, but wished we could have seen it.
If u really want to see the sights, could do a train tour....plenty passed us but I watched the tiny open cars go by....the way to do this island. Think they were around $70 to rent to hold 4. We were there about 7 hours so worth it.

How cool was it to walk in the steps of a world leader during the most challenging time in the 20th century. This is a lovingly preserved piece of history that is a must see in a very unlikely place.

My son and I toured The Little white House while he was visiting Key West. It's such a pleasure to play tourist in your own home town! The tour guide was very informative, not only in the tour's narrative content but also in that he had ready answers to all questions asked by our touring group. The home is in amazing condition and the history within it's walls is more than captivating. Loved the poker table and the visual images of Harry and his associates gathered around for their evening card games. Great little gift shop too. I highly recommend the tour for those visiting Key west!

The tour guide was not the most personable but the "Little White House" is neat attraction to see. It is a guided tour, where you can see the rooms as they were back in the Truman's time. The history of the building and other Presidential visits make this a msut do if you have any interest in history.
