- Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States, loved Key West so much so that he established a residence known as the Little White House. Built in 1890 as officer's quarters at the naval station, the wooden waterfront duplex became a single family home that also welcomed inventor Thomas Edison and Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter and John F. Kennedy. Take the guided home tour, then take a self-guided stroll of the grounds. The gift shop on-site offers great little trinkets to take home.
