The Woodrow Wilson presidential library and birthplace certainly deserves a place in history since President Wilson was such an important person in our history. The docents were excellent and very informative. The house tour gave us excellent historical information for the time period.

The facility is pretty much as was in the day that Wilson was there. Explanations are very good, giving an understandable look at how things worked. For any student of history, this is a great site, filling in the blanks with excellent detail. Recommend it...More
