The National Park Service (NPS) is closing the historic residence of President of the United States Truman at the Harry S Truman National Historic Site to all public use through May 30, 2010. This action is necessary because the house is undergoing major repairs and restoration. All furniture and artifacts that are key to interpretive tours for the public will be removed for the project to protect them. The restoration and repair activities will also create conditions that are a hazard to the public health and safety. Closure of the home will allow completion of a process that will restore to original appearance and protect and conserve the historic home of President Truman and its contents.
