A Grand View!

This fence and the lovely trees surround a retirement community
on Harry Truman Road in Grandview, Missouri.


The Truman Family Farmhouse still stands on the property near by.
From his room, a young Harry wrote letters to Bess Wallace, 
young lady he befriended in school in Independence, MO.
Did Bess ever dream they would someday be 
President and First Lady?

They are gorgeous! And the pretty color of the fence makes them even prettier! Does the house open for tours?

Beautiful, and Truman I think was a good man. He was the only president I have ever seen in person. My grandfather took me to see him.

Karen said...

Truman was President when I was a small child. I remember when Eisenhower was elected. I think Carter and Nixon are the only ones I have seen in person.
