Key West Harry S. Truman Foundation Mission

Thank you for your interest in the Key West Harry S. Truman Foundation and our mission to preserve the Harry S. Truman Little White House, Florida’s only presidential museum, and programming that supports civic engagement, education, and the historic and cultural influences of the Truman era.

We are dedicated to sharing the stories and archival objects of Truman, his Key West lifestyle and presidential meetings that took place at his Little White House. The House continues to host presidents, dignitaries and world leaders for summits, relaxation, recuperation and peace talks, playing a role in the shaping of America’s future here and abroad.
