He spent a total of 175 days on the U.S. Naval Base, which served as a southern White House. The only presidential museum in Florida, the Harry S. Truman Little White House is a featured stop on the tour.

Naval Influences
Key West has a strong maritime heritage, which began with the arrival of the "Mosquito Fleet." The large flotilla under the command of Commodore David Porter was used to pursue and capture pirates. The West Indies Anti-Piracy campaign enabled merchant vessels to sail safely through the Straits of Florida. The U.S. Navy continues to utilize this strategic island as a naval base.
