Due to the Santa-Cali-Gon Days Festival (Aug. 29 - Sept. 1) in downtown Independence, parking will be limited around the park visitor center and surrounding neighborhoods. Please plan accordingly. The Truman Home will be open for tours.
Harry S Truman National Historic Site is constantly searching for new ways to connect with you. Social media websites allow the park to expand the ways with which we communicate information, while also enabling and encouraging you to experience the park in an entirely new way. Get connected today!
