Visited by Presidents, dignitaries, royalty, Prime Ministers and an array of prestigious people, the Harry S. Truman Little White House in Key West holds a special place in the history of the United States. It was here that President Truman came in search of a place to rest and relax. When our 33rd President arrived he discovered much more than a peaceful island hideaway, he found a place he’d like to call home.
Built in 1890 as quarters for the Naval Base Commander and Paymaster, the Little White House took its place in history early on. In 1912, President William Taft visited the house and in 1918, Thomas Edison lived there for several months as he worked on inventing new weapons for the war effort.
Although several other United States Presidents visited the Little White House in the years that followed, it ultimately was named for Harry Truman because of his deep affection and adoration for the home and Key West.
