Woodrow Wilson grew up in a manse because his father was a Presbyterian minister in the church across the street. He was called "Tom" and carved his name into the window pane of his bedroom. The house is lovely and provides an insight into life of that time and this interesting young man. Worth going out of your way to... More

Downtown Augusta at the corner of 7th and Telfair Streets is the beautiful boyhood home of United States President Woodrow Wilson. Across the street is the beautiful First Presbyterian Church founded in 1804 where Woodrow Wilson attended church as his father was the pastor.

This was the first place that we visited when we got to town for my husbands work. This place was very interesting, the guide was very well knowledgeable on what took place in the house and the house was decorated to back when Woodrow Wilson grew up there.

I was surprised to learn Woodrow Wilson has a first name..Tommy and grew up in Augusta...His dad was the minister of the Presbyterian Church across the street. The home has been rescored to the 1860-1870 time period when Tommy Wilson lived there. A wonderful job. I highly recommend a visit should you ever be in Augusta..

Who knew that he was known as "Tommy", that he was a budding second baseman, and that he knew how to etch a window? Learn personal, human details of one of our greatest presidents. Well worth a stop.

This is a charming little museum that is very quiet (at least the times we visited) and offers a nice chuck of history for an hour's worth of your time. The guided tour is very personal and professional. I have been back two times now in the last 5 years.

The house and it's history was worth the stop. The tour guide was informative and eager to share his knowledge. Note, check the website for tour times as the house requires a guided tour (tour is included in price of admission).

Woodrow Wilson spent many of his formative years in Augusta and this house is a very good restoration of his boyhood home. The home also provides a good look at upper middle class life in the Civil War era south. The house is only accessible via a guided tour (available on the hour and lastis 45 minutes to an hour,...

Hours are very narrow. No pictures allowed. You can go right by if you are not looking it is a two story brick home. Worth a stop if you have time and enjoy the history of homes.
