We loved the tour of Woodrow Wilson's birthplace. While his family only lived here for a couple of years in a house owned by the Presbyterian Church where his father pastored, Staunton is the place of the Wilson Presidential Library as well. Definitely recommend it.

Very good tour guide. Knew the history of Wilson and the home. Lot of period furniture. Great to see a place rich in history but not overrun with visitors.
