We Believe Black Lives Matter

We Believe Black History Matters.

Historic places of all types and periods should be places of truth-telling and inclusivity.

Support The Woodrow Wilson House

The Woodrow Wilson House, a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, opened to the public as a museum in 1963.  We take our responsibilities seriously as stewards of this House. We share Wilson's legacy, a legacy that includes WWl, the League of Nations, and visions of world peace as well as policies that institutionalized racism, segregation and loss and obstruction of civil liberties. As historians, preservationists and educators we are determined to share the truth of history, even when it is not complimentary to its subjects.

The Woodrow Wilson House is regularly open to the public for guided tours, serves school and other group tours, is available for public meetings, corporate events, and weddings, presents exhibitions in its gallery, and offers educational programming.

An honest appraisal of history helps us understand ourselves as a nation and as a people.
