Why Support Woodrow Wilson House?
The Woodrow Wilson House was opened to the public as a museum in 1963. In 2013 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the museum. The existence of Woodrow Wilson House is a testament to the devotion and foresight of Mrs. Wilson in preserving this home for posterity. We take seriously our responsibilities as stewards of this home, its garden and its collections. Donations to the Woodrow Wilson House help us succeed in this work.

In addition, we have a responsibility to educate the public about President Wilson and his legacy. President Wilson and his administration were a bridge between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His legacy includes the League of Nations, women’s right to vote, and the Federal Reserve System. And it is so much more than that.

We are planning educational programming relating to the period from 1900 to 1925 to address topics such as:

International law and the concept of human rights;
Women in society and the workforce;
Foundations of modern progressive government;
Education reform;
Roles of the Congress and the President;
Social changes relating to race, immigration and the labor movement;
Acceptance of modern thought (Einstein, Freud, Darwin);
Technologies for transportation and communication; and
The United States on the world stage.

Thank you for your support of our mission. Please contact us with any questions.
