Woodrow Wilson was here only as a baby when his father was a minister. That said it was interesting to visit a home of that time period. The guide was very informative. We did learn more about Woodrow Wilson's career.

The house and museum were informative and I learned a lot about Wilson's family and his early years. The docent was knowledgeable. Wilson's home is probably the most simple of all the presidential houses in Virginia and offered an interesting contrast to the large estates...More
