Despite fed cuts, Truman parks run by Mo. are open

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Despite trouble on the federal level, Missouri-operated park sites devoted to former president Harry Truman are alive and well.

Budget cuts in Washington have forced the closure of federally-operated Truman sites, such as the Truman Farm Home in Grandview south of Kansas City.

But the state of Missouri said Tuesday that its Truman-related parks are open. They include the Truman Birthplace in Lamar, which allows visitors to view the small house where Truman was born.

Also open is Truman State Park in Warsaw, located on Truman Lake.
