Home of President Harry S Truman from his marriage in 1919 until his death in 1972. Originally built by George Porterfield Gates and his wife Elizabeth, their granddaughter, Elizabeth Virginia Wallace Truman, served the nation as First Lady from 1945-1953. The Truman Home was left to the American people by Mrs. Truman in her will, and the home is, today, just as it was. From 1945-1953, 219 North Delaware Street was, perhaps, the second most famous address in America.
