Thanks for a fun morning @harrystrumannps ! We couldn’t have asked for better rangers to help us explore, learn about, and protect this part of our nation’s history. #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #harrystrumannps #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #juniorranger #juniorrangerbadge
The Noland Home now serves as the site museum and features exhibits that highlight President Truman’s values and dedication to family life among other topics. This house was home to Truman’s cousins when he was younger, which allowed him to spend time with his childhood friend and future wife, Bess, who lived across the street. #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #harrystrumannps #nationalparkgeek #juniorranger #findyourpark
The early bird catches the worm, which means we got a private tour of the Truman Home with Ranger Alexandra! She has been at the site for three years and was full of information about the life of President Truman. It was really neat to learn about his efforts to maintain a simple life with his family before, during, and after his time in office. #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #harrystrumannps #rangersrock #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #nationalparksroadtrip
Sometimes we explore, learn, and protect during coffee because mornings are for coffee and contemplation. #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #harrystrumannps #nationalparksroadtrip #findyourpark
Hers & His! Bess Wallace's family owned what would be later known as Harry S. Truman's "Summer White House". It was across the street from Truman's aunt's home, the Noland House. Truman and Bess met when Truman returned a cake pan to the neighbors! And here I thought those love stories only happened in Hallmark movies 😊 . ... . #findyourpark #harrystrumannps #nps #nationalparkservice #usa #summerwhitehouse #hersandhis #givesmehope #returnthosecakepansyo #teetertottertravel

Yep, that's Harry S Truman's car. Parked outside in the detached garage is the car that Truman purchased six months before he died, a 1972 Chrysler Newport Royal. Truman had his license plate from the presidency “5745” – the number for V.E. Day on May 7, 1945 – transferred to the car. #linkinbio
Our Presidential Tour continues… We’ve spent the last two days in Independence, Missouri. We’ve been exploring the Harry S. Truman Presidential Museum and Library, as well as the Harry S. Truman National Historic Site. Today we toured the home at 219 N. Delaware Avenue. And of course, we’ve been sampling BBQ…Photos: (1) The Truman Oval Office; (2) Artifacts from the museum; (3) A Purple Heart and accompanying letter that were sent to Truman by a Gold Star family while he was President during the Korean War—they were found in his desk drawer after his death; (4&5) Bess and Harry’s home in Independence; (6) Junior Ranger; and (7) a fitting Truman quote. . #harrystrumannps #findyourpark #juniorranger #roadschool #homeschool #harrystrumanlibrary #harrystrumanpresidentiallibrary #presidented #bigbigtrip #historynerd #myrivetedlife #liveriveted #myliverivetedlife #ourrivetedlife #fulltimervfamily #purpleheart #koreanwar #coldwar #worldwarII #NYTParkAdventures

The #NPSCentennial is in just 5 days! You can celebrate with us tomorrow, Aug 20th at our centennial event and #findyourpark . Clifton Truman Daniel, the grandson of Harry and Bess Truman, will participate in the offical dedication of the Noland Home. The ceremony will take place from 2:30-2:45.

The Truman home, formerly the Gates home, was built in three stages, ca. 1850 (kitchen wing), 1867 and 1885. The first image shows the home just after the "grand addition" in 1885. The fence was added in 1949. #trumanhome #generations #victorian #npscentennial #findyourpark #harrystrumannps

From the Collection: This demitasse is one of a set of twelve given to President Truman in appreciation for his assistance to the German people by the Mitterteich Chinaware Factory of Bavaria in 1951. Truman initiated the Berlin airlift in June 1948 after Soviet forces cut supply routes for goods to and from West Berlin. The airlift successfully delivered 2.3 million tons of supplies to the area over one year. #harrystrumannps #trumanhome #berlinairlift #demitasse #espresso

"I prefer my life in Missouri and I prefer to live the way I do." -Harry S Truman #trumanhome #livingroom #President #harrystrumannps #findyourpark #details
Former President Harry S. Truman home in Independence, Missouri. Truman lived here from 1919-1972. (The year he married his wife, Bess, to the year he died.) The home was used as his summer home during his presidency as well. Now a National Historic Site within the National Park Service, the home gives a wonderful glimpse in the everyday life of a president. #explore #Missouri #nps #wanderlust #summer #museum #learn #home #historic #history #harrystrumannps #findyourpark #ww2 #everydaylife #travel #bluesky #historynerd
