The Truman Farm Home

Twenty-two-year-old Harry Truman gave up his $100 a month bank salary to go work on the family farm in 1906. The farmhouse, with no plumbing or electricity, stood in stark contrast to the bright lights of Kansas City. On the farm, Harry had little privacy, sharing the seven-room house with his grandmother, parents, sister and brother.

During Harry's eleven years on the farm, he worked hard, planned for the future, and confronted each challenge with calm determination. His demanding father expected Harry to do his best - whether it was planning straight corn rows or stacking hay. After his father's death in 1914, Harry assumed responsibility for the farm's success or failure.

Fee: $4.00 for adults, children 15 and under are free
