As Wilson's daddy was a minister, he lived in many places growing up so now many cities/states have historic boyhood homes of this president which tickles me. I saw this home before much of the restoration took place, and they have done a marvelous job of it. Next door is the Lamar House where his boyhood friend lived; he grew... More

The tour of Woodrow Wilson's boyhood home showed in-depth the childhood of the 28th President. After watching a video, you tour the house. While there are few original artifacts, the house has been nicely restored.

We were passing through Augusta, and had a little time to kill so we thought this would be interesting. This was our 5th Presidential home and the tour was guided and informative. As someone stated in one of the other reviews, it was nice to walk through the actual rooms, instead of peeking over a velvet rope. I recommend this... More

This is a nice place to visit if you are looking for something historic in Augusta. This is not a National Park Service location but instead is run locally. There are three buildings and a video included in the tour.

I've been on my share of tours of historic homes and places and found this to be one of the best tours available. I loved being able to walk through each room, not just peek in past the rope at the door. The docent conducting our your have us a lot of information about the furniture (and was a self... More

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.
