We next went to the home that he and Bess lived in for the rest of their lives. (except when he lived in the White House) The Truman home is on Delaware Street. We visited the Truman Presidential Library and museum. We visited and toured Vaile Mansion and Bingham-Waggoner Mansion. We went to the train station where Harry Truman started his presidential campaign. We visited the Clinton's soda fountain, where Truman had his first job when in was a drug store, and had ice cream. We stopped by the Old Log Courthouse, where Truman served as a judge, when the main courthouse was being renovated. Finally, we went through the National Frontier Trails Museum. We ate Sunday brunch at Ophelia's, which was delicious. Independence is a quaint, quiet, midwest town, worth a visit.

Trivia Question- Harry S. Truman-What does the "S" stand for?
Answer: Nothing. His grandfather's names were Solomon
