President Woodrow Wilson House

Happy Friday!!

The Woodrow Wilson House is a historic home located in Kalorama- Embassy Row neighborhood. The Georgian Revival style home was built in 1915 and is where Woodrow Wilson retired after he left office in 1921.  He lived there until his death in 1924, and Mrs. Wilson continued to live there until her death in 1961.

President Woodrow Wilson bought it in the last months of his second term as President of the United States as a gift to his wife. Mr. Wilson insisted that his wife attend a concert and when she returned he presented her with the deed to this S Street house.

The home was opened for the public in 1963.

Tickets are $10 (seniors are $8). I would recommend finding deals on Groupon, I got a pair of tickets for $9.50.
