The Bingham-Waggoner Estate

313 W Pacific Ave, Independence, MO 64050

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 Estate is available for tours and for private events and rentals in addition to a variety of regularly scheduled public events.
