Visit a President’s House on Presidents’ Day!

February 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$3 – $5

Celebrate Presidents’ Day with a tour of the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson!

The Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson will be open for tours on Monday, February 15, 2021 in honor of Presidents’ Day. Guided tours will be available from 10 AM to 4 PM on the hour by reservation.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students K-12.

Masks must be worn throughout the tour, and groups shall be no more than six people and must be from the same party.

Visitors to the museum will have the opportunity to tour the house where Wilson lived during his formative years in Augusta. The classical revival house, built in 1859 by a local stove and tinware merchant named Aaron H. Jones, was quite modern with lighting and plumbing. The Trustees of First Presbyterian Church purchased the home in 1860 as their Manse where young Wilson’s father served as their minister. The Wilsons were the first occupants of the house. Recognized as a National Historic Landmark, the home is interpreted in the 1860s decade when Wilson and his family occupied the home. Patrons will learn about the lasting impact of Wilson’s childhood experiences during the Civil War and Reconstruction.

The Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson is located at 419 Seventh Street in downtown Augusta. In addition to Presidents’ Day, the museum is open for tours Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on the hour from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. by appointment. Parking is available next door to the Wilson House.
