The historic Noland Home
The historic Noland Home, at 216 North Delaware.


Have you ever walked in the footsteps of a future president? How about being where a great love was rediscovered?

Across the street from the Truman Home is the historic Noland Home, at 216 North Delaware. It belonged Harry Truman's Uncle Joseph and Aunt Ella Noland, and two of his favorite cousins, Ethel and Nellie Noland. When visiting Independence, Harry Truman would stay at the Nolands' home, knowing that across the street was that blue eyed, blond-haired beauty he loved, Miss Bess Wallace. One day in 1910, after not seeing one another, Bess Wallace and Harry Truman were reunited, thanks to the Nolands. After nine years of courtship, Bess and Harry married on June 28, 1919.

The Noland Home is open to the public on the first floor from 8:30 AM to 4:30PM Wednesdays to Sundays, with exhibits to help us think about Truman's life. There are also restrooms and water fountains. We recommend that all visit the Noland Home before or after their tours of the Truman Home. Maybe you'll walk in the footsteps of Harry Truman as he was reunited with the great love of his life?
