This home has been wonderfully restored to the Civil War period when young Woodrow Wilson lived here. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly. more »
Toured the Boyhood home of Woodrow Wilson and while I thought I would just see a few fun facts about him I also learned about Augusta and how life would have been if we would lived in that era. Very..... more »
We really enjoyed our tour. It is very inexpensive and it takes roughly an hour to see everything. They offer a guided tour of the house. $5 per adult, $3 for students/school aged children, and children under 5 are free. It was completely worth it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. I learned a lot about Woodrow Wilson, his family, and the time period in which they lived. Overall a great experience for our family.
The tour was very important event and we learned a lot. The price was incredibly reasonable and we got more than our money's worth. It was so fascinating to hear the history about the house as well as the life of our former President Woodrow Wilson. It is well worth a visit especially if you have young kids or children who are in school and learning about the presidents.
