Beginning in January 2022 the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson located at 419 7th Street, Augusta, Georgia, will expand its hours of operation to include Saturday tours. Tours are offered for the National Historic Landmark site at the top of the hour, Wednesdays through Saturdays, at 10 and 11 A.M., and at 1, 2, 3 and 4 P.M. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and include a short video, exhibits about Wilson’s entire life, and a guided tour of the house which is restored and furnished to the 1860s era when the Wilsons were in residence.

President Wilson grew up in Augusta from 1858 until 1870 while his father was pastor of First Presbyterian Church during the Civil War and early years of Reconstruction. His residence in the Presbyterian Manse began in 1860 and was over a period of nearly 11 years, the longest time the future President spent in any house over his lifetime. These formative years included his earliest memories, his impressions of the war and its aftermath, and the beginnings of his education and leadership skills.

The house is closed on most national holidays.

Admission is $10 for adults; $8 for seniors 65 and over and active military; $5 for students 5-18.
