General Management Plan

The National Parks and Recreation Act of 1978 requires that the National Park Service maintain up-to-date management plans for each unit of the national park system. The General Management Plan for Harry S Truman National Historic Site provides broad management direction for resource management, visitor use, and development 15-20 years into the future. The initial General Management Plan was completed in 1987 and was revised in 1999.
