Key West - President Truman's "Little White House"

Harry Truman, President from 1945 to 1953, used this house on the Navy base in Key West as a winter vacation headquarters many times. It was known as the "Little White House." President Eisenhower and President Kennedy also used this house. This house was built around 1890 as part of the Key West Navy base. Most of the base has been sold, and houses have been built in the area.

 

This view shows the front of the house, away from the street. It was originally the waterfront side. It is no longer on the water. Another building was built on new landfill
