"I hope to be remembered as the people's President." - Harry S Truman

President Harry S Truman took America from its traditional isolationism into the age of international involvement. Despite his power, he never forgot where he came from. Today, visitors can experience the surroundings Truman knew as a young man of modest ambition through his political career and final years as a former president.

The home where Harry and Bess Truman returned to in 1953, after Harry left the White House, is available for tours. Sign up at the National Park Service site at 223 N. Main.

After your tour walk across Delaware Street and to the Noland Home. This is where Harry’s cousins Nellie and Ethel Noland invited him to meet their neighbor Bess Wallace for the first time. Their freshly renovated home is a recent addition to the historic site, with a gallery that takes you deeper into the Trumans’ domestic life.
