The President Woodrow Wilson House is the home to which President and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson lived after leaving the White House in 1921. Open to the public since 1963, the Woodrow Wilson House is decorated much as it was when President Wilson lived here, replete with his art, photographs, furniture, gifts of state, and presidential memorabilia. The home contains more than 8,000 artifacts, including the dip pen with which President Wilson signed the Declaration of War for World War I, a mosaic presented by Pope Benedict XV, a gold timepiece presented by the first President of Czechoslovakia, and a “graph-o-scope” presented by Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks.
Designed by Waddy B. Wood, a fashionable Washington architect in 1915, this National Trust Historic Site is situated just off of “Embassy Row” in the historic Sheridan Kalorama neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C. and is a National Historic Landmark.
The House is shown by guided tour on the hour.
