When Woodrow Wilson and his wife Edith retired from the White House in 1921 they made this house their home. Just off the beaten path of Embassy Row in the heart of Washington, D.C. the house is historically preserved – a time capsule from 1924 that is open daily to visitors. Since 1963, the National Trust has opened the doors of the Woodrow Wilson House to the public, examining the impact of his consequential presidency and, more recently, taking an honest appraisal of Wilson’s triumphs and shortcomings. Today, we are proud to steward this site as a vibrant community resource and a model of preservation and historical collections.
