Stephanie, the primary guide of Woodrow Wilson’s Boyhood Home, is the definition of true southern hospitality. More than just a guide, Stephanie told the story of Woodrow Wilson’s childhood with such detail, it felt as if I was witnessing it live. There was so much history within the walls of this attraction and would definitely recommend setting aside an hour... More

A last minute decision to visit a childhood home of President Wilson unfolded more information about the man. Having visited his other home in Virginia, it was interesting to see how the years spent in Augusta influenced and shaped his life. Growing up during the Civil War and being on the spot to see the wounded soldiers right across the... More

This is a fascinating and wonderful home of President Wilson in his youth. The history, the home and structures, and the museum set up are just fantastic. One learns so very much about the man, his home, and family.

The tour was very informative for myself and kids aged 11 and 13 and very reasonably priced. A little disappointed that not much in the house was actually there when Woodrow Wilson was living there. Also kind of a let down to know he only lived there for ten years. That is why I say if you are in Augusta... More

Our gentlemen quide was very well informed. He provided many personal and interesting facts about President Wilson's boyhood and his family. How much young "Tommy" was influenced by the Civil War he heard and saw outside his door. We arrrived between 10 and 11am, parking not a problem, parked next to the home. Toured the out buildings/kitchen and servant quarters.... More

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. - George Santayana This is my third Wilson home to visit and an indispensable hit on my Bucket List. See where the boy Tommy etched his name in the glass and the window from which the child could hear the screams of Civil War soldiers being operated on.

Nice to see where Woodrow Wilson lived the first 14 years of his life and how he was influenced by the Civil War outside his door. The guide tells about how a "kitchen is not attached to the structure due to fire" and a hundreds of other pieces of info that you hear at any home tour. I would like... More

History buffs, we enjoy going through historical places, and are glad we stopped here. Our tour guide was so well informed. We feel like we know not only Woodrow Wilson, but Augustans who lived in his era. Woodrow was "Tommy" until he went to college. Tommy spent his formative years here from age 1 to 15, the son of a...
