Throughout his life, President Truman would keep a fashionable pace everywhere he went. To honor his enduring love of walking and history, we’ve put together the Truman Historic Walking Trail.

Beginning at the Truman Home Visitor Center at Main Street and Truman Road, this 2.7-mile trail includes 43 stops, featuring important places in the life of President Harry S. Truman. Included along the way are landmarks and homes of Truman’s friends and associates, each marked by a plaque noting its significance.

Printed brochures are available at the Truman Home Visitor Center and the Visitor Experience Center.
