Site Info

The Bingham-Waggoner Estate is truly a one-of-a-kind gem located near the historic downtown of Independence, Missouri. Although the Truman Presidential Library and Harry and Bess Truman's home are popular sites, the Bingham-Waggoner Estate offers its own special look into an earlier era. This well-preserved estate provides insights into the lifestyles of the 19th century wealthy residents.

The house is also completely decorated for Christmas, and is open for the Christmas season from the day after Thanksgiving until December 30, with the exception of December 23rd through 25th.
