Harry S Truman

Independence, Missouri

Truman Library

Return to:

President Truman's grave is located in the courtyard of his Presidential libarary and museum and is
accompanied by an eternal flame. The building is located within a block of his home and sits on
land previously used as a city park. The outside courtyard is surrounded by the building and
accessible only during museum hours.

We returned to the gravesite during May 2001, figuring to get pictures without snow and clouds. Unfortunately, 
we arrived during a major construction and paid our respects beneath the din of small bobcat front loaders.

Jesse is considerably older. No snow this time
but imagine the sound of the construction crew
completely rearranging the quiet courtyard. (5/01)

I was particulary moved to see President Trumans's
 'perpetual flame' unearthed and set aside during 
the reconstruction (5/01)
