South Carolina's only presidential historic site, this distinctive circa-1872 Italian villa-style residence was home to a 14-year-old boy named Tommy Wilson. Here his father Dr. Joseph Ruggles Wilson and his mother Jeannie Woodrow Wilson raised the young man who would come to hold the United States executive office and guide the nation through World War I as the first modern world statesman.

Standing at the southeast entry to the Robert Mills Garden District the Woodrow Wilson Family Home is a tangible link to the watershed Reconstruction era. Its history is embedded in the story of a southern community struggling to rebuild following the Civil War.

At this historic site, experience From Dreams to Visions and Hopes to Purposes: Woodrow Wilson and Columbia, which addresses the Reconstruction era environment; the development of Thomas "Tommy" Woodrow Wilson from boy to man; and the historic preservation movement as experienced in South Carolina's capital city.

The Woodrow Wilson Family Home is now open to the public. Tickets for tours can be purchased at the Museum Shop at Robert Mills, 1616 Blanding Street, for $5 - $8.
