    The Room in Which Harry Was Born

    by basstbn Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Harry was born in the downstairs southwest bedroom, shown here. None of the furnishings in this historic site belonged to the Truman family, but all are accurate to the period. The Trumans moved back to the Kansas City area when Harry was only 11 months old.

    Missorui State Parks plans for this state park area to also include a replication of a historical schoolhouse to serve as a visitor center and museum, restoration of John Truman's livery stable, and more.

    The Truman Home Kitchen

    by basstbn Written Jul 30, 2004

    It makes me feel old to visit historic settings such as this and see household gadgets and applances that my family used, and now they are called relics.

    The most important room in any house!
