President's Day Tours | Woodrow Wilson Family Home

Monday, February 17, 2020 11:30 am

1705 Hampton Street
Columbia, SC 29201

Join Historic Columbia on Monday, Feb. 17 for tours of the Woodrow Wilson
Family Home: A Museum of Reconstruction to see how his time in Columbia may
have influenced his decisions as President.

Normally closed to the public on Mondays, there is no better way to mark
President’s Day than by taking a tour of the only Presidential site in
South Carolina. The Woodrow Wilson Family Home is also the nation's only
museum dedicated to interpreting the post-Civil War Reconstruction period.
During the height of Reconstruction, Woodrow Wilson's parents built this
house, the only one they would ever own. Although the home has changed hands
many times since the teenaged future president lived here, it stands as a
reminder of how our city struggled to rebuild itself in the post-war era.
