Beautifully updated & warmly furnished upstairs apartment located in the wonderful Truman Heritage District of Independence. Walk to Independence Square with it’s many shops & unique restaurants. LaLa was my mother. I have furnished these apartments with her things or items she gave me. There are a few of my father’s aviation things as well.

During your stay
I live North of the Missouri River in Holt, MO; about an hour away. I would love to meet you if I’m available. I do have another home on Wadmalaw Island, SC where I try to spend as much time as I possibly can.

If I happen to be away I do have cohosts, Laura and Graham. Laura was raised in the brick home across the street. Her family still lives there. Laura and her husband now live about 20 minutes away in the Englewood District of Independence.
