We visited the Edith Bolling Wilson Museum in Wytheville, Va., on July 23, 2013, and enjoyed seeing her personal possessions beautifully displayed on the first floor. Then Jeremy Miller treated us to a special tour of the second-floor home where Edith grew up with by her large family. It was so interesting to walk through her childhood surroundings still in their original state from 1910 when Wytheville itself was very small. Renovation of Edith Wilson's home is just beginning at a time of renewal for the town itself. Everywhere we looked, storefronts were coming alive. It's an exciting place, and the crown jewel is the Edith Bolling Wilson Museum. Be sure to see it, donate to help the restoration, and look closely, because the next time you go, everything may be different. We felt lucky to "be in on the ground floor" where we could feel the energy of Edith's family surrounding us! Thank you for a special time - and we will return.. Annie and Mack Rowe, Madison, Va.
