We came across this little piece of history on our self guided exploration of Key West> Unfortunately we found it late in our trip and could not go on the guided tour, however what we did find was fascinating, this history of the use of this property. Multiple Presidents used the facility for varying reasons, I cannot wait to go back and complete the guided tour.

This tour was a rewarding experience to say the least. The tour guide (Audi) made the entire tour extra special by pointing out the little things that sometimes would go unnoticed and she was always open to answer any and all questions. The best thing is furnishings are as period original as possible with most items being there when it was the Little White House for Harry S. Truman. The guide also pointed out specific happenings that occurred in each room who participated and what furnishings were involved. Shouldn't be missed!

My husband and I recently experienced the tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Definitely worth the time and money. Fascinating part of Key West history to learn about how several Presidents took advantage of the peaceful accommodations. Our tour guide added an interesting and humorous touch to the tour. The only thing I think the tour is missing is the availability of high level tour talk points in different languages (so non-English speaking patrons can at least follow along on paper during the tour).
