Woodrow Wilson only lived there 10 years...seems hardly not right that now it's a money maker attraction. So we did not pay to go in but looked at what seemed to be a very modern home! The bullet holes in the window were fascinating! LOL. Fun to see b/c of who he was... and just right there in the city!

I enjoyed this tour. You start by watching a video about the President's life. Then you get a tour of his house, kitchen, and backyard. The docent is knowledgeable and friendly. The house it air conditioned, so it was a great way to escape the summer heat. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for students and active military.

We have been to several homes of Presidents and enjoyed seeing this one. We saw a short film about Wilson's life here and the influence on him of seeing wounded Confederate soldiers on the church grounds across from their home. The tour guide was very informative and provided good information.

This is Woodrow Wilson's boyhood home until the age of about 14. It is better than the one in South Carolina where his family moved to from here when he was about 14. Tours are given on the hour and start next door with a short film to begin. Lots of information on Woodrow and his family while here and... More

The women here did such an amazing job re-enacting the time period and teaching us about the history of Augusta and of President Wilson. Seeing his initials carved into the window was pretty amazing. I am so thankful that they have preserved the home and have shared it with others. What a great experience! I encourage all those living in... More

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.
