He obviously admires and respects the Office of the President----not in a partisan political way but with an obvious reverence for the position in our government---;he shared anecdotes about those who had stayed at the Little White House. We came away with a real sense of history and wanted to learn more. James made... More

We rate the Little Whitehouse as the top attraction in Key West. As a building, the Little Whitehouse isn't all that grand. It's a nice big house with nice 1950s furniture. What is grand is how much, through the relatively humble artifacts, you learn about Truman as a person and as a President. He becomes real in a way you... More

Just came across this while on a walk. There are docent led tours for a fee but one is able to look in some of the downstairs area and the grounds for free.

We had no idea that this "Little Whitehouse" existed. So glad we found it. Tons of information about not only Truman but the other Presidents that have used the house to conduct Presidential meetings and talks. Great find!

This "Little White House" is so laid-back, so down-to-earth.....just like Truman. Yet, it was a functioning White House and a Presidential retreat for 6 US Presidents. The home is filled with many of the original furnishings, including the "famous" poker table. We were amazed at the number of ashtrays found throughout the home.....too many to get an accurate count. We... More
