Harry S. Truman
Little White House

red sepertor

Since 1890, history has left its mark on the Truman Little White House. Initially, it served as the naval station’s command headquarters during the Spanish-American War, World War I and World War II. In 1946 the historic building first served as the winter White House of President Harry S. Truman and a site for the Cold War response by later presidents. Today, the Truman Little White House is a public, living, Key West museum as well as a retreat and place of government business by our nation's leaders.

Key West
Historical Documents

red sepertor
The eleven trips of President Harry S. Truman were recorded in official trip logs. Often regarded as mere souvenirs for family and staff, a more careful reading reveal clues as to the working of the president in Key West. There are numerous mentions of key staff, both political and military, flying into Key West to meet with President Harry S. Truman. What they did and what was said are not revealed in the logs as the details may have been classified at the time. These presidential logs provide starting points for more detailed research for the serious student and provide personal insight into the life of the president on vacation for the causual reader.

The Little White House
restoration Project
red sepertor
In 1974, changing technologies closed the Key West Submarine Base and the Little White House went through a twelve year period of disuse. On
January 1, 1987, the title to this presidential museum was transferred to the state of Florida for permanent protection. Beginning in 1988, more than two million dollars have been privately raised and gone into its restoration. Although owned by the state of Florida, the Harry S Truman Little White House receives no regular financial support from the state or federal government. Please consider a gift to our not-for-profit foundation to enable the much needed restoration process to continue.
