Touring the Home
A Stair-Trac device provides wheelchair access to the first floor of the Truman Home. The stair-trac is a portable wheelchair lift that attaches to a park-provided wheelchair. With the touch of a button, it allows park staff to move a visitor in a wheelchair up or down steps at the Truman Home. The Truman Farm Home is wheelchair accessible only on the first floor.

Tour scripts are available for the hearing-impaired and in large-type format. Tour scripts are available in German, Spanish, Japanese and French. Close-captioning and assistive listening devices are available upon request for the audiovisual program at the Visitor Center.

In Harry Truman’s first proposal to Bess (by letter), he wrote about the lack of rain making water and potatoes as rare as pineapples and diamonds. He continued, “Speaking of diamonds, would you wear a solitaire on your left hand should I get it?” She gently turned him down, but later accepted.
