219 North Delaware Street...Then, and Now!
In her Last Will and Testament, First Lady Bess Wallace Truman gave the people of the United States a beautiful gift...her family's home and its contents. Technically, she left it to the care of the National Archives, who in turn asked the National Park Service to step in.
When you visit today, you see the home almost exactly as it was.
Thank you, Mrs. Truman.
