This film, shown in the park's visitor center, is intended to help serve as an introduction to the Gates/ Wallace/ Truman home, the stories of those who lived and worked there, and a place that would always have a special place in the hearts of Harry and Bess Truman. The Trumans lived at their beloved 219 North Delaware in their retirement years. It was the  center of their personal universe.
