Explore the history and life of our 28th President at the Woodrow Wilson House, a Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation located in Washington, D.C.
The Woodrow Wilson House is the home to which President and Mrs. Wilson retired from the White House in 1921. President Wilson lived here until his death in 1924, and Mrs. (Edith) Wilson lived in the home until her death in 1961, at which time she bequeathed the home and its furnishings to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The house and gardens were designed by architect Waddy Butler Wood and completed in 1915. In 2013, the Woodrow Wilson House is celebrating its 50th year as a historic site museum.
