The President Woodrow Wilson House
What to Expect
The President Woodrow Wilson House opens a window onto the private life of the nation's 28th president. This home on S Street is where the president settled down after leading the nation through World War I, creating the League of Nations, and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Architect Waddy Butler Wood designed the home and gardens in the Georgian Revival style with a marble entryway and grand staircase, book-lined study, and a solarium overlooking the garden. Preserved the way it looked on the year of his death, President Wilson's home contains remarkable memorabilia from his life, including a Steinway piano from the White House and a mosaic he received from Pope Benedict XV. The house has now been a museum for half a century and is open to the public.
