Description
Harry S. Truman Little White House Photos (4)

Take a tour through the decades with a visit to the residence of presidents, foreign diplomats, and others. Originally, The Little White House in Key West, FL. was built in 1890 as the first officer's quarters on the naval station. In the beginning of the 20th century, the home was converted into a single family dwelling to house the base commandant. The house has been host to many distinguished guests, including Thomas Edison, who resided in the house during World War I while working on depth charge research for the U.S. Navy.

In 1946, Harry Truman visited Key West for 175 days, unable to part with the tropical climate, and made the Little White House his winter home. He held meetings in the residence with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, drafted the Truman Doctrine and Marshall Plan, and even had some time to do some afternoon fishing or go into town to converse with the locals. While other presidents have stayed here, this home has been named after Harry Truman due to his adoration of the region and passion of the island lifestyle.
