Having served as the 28th President of the United States, leading the nation through World War I, and giving the world the League of Nations, Woodrow Wilson moved to S Street in 1921 to reflect on his career as a scholar, politician, and world statesman. This National Trust Historic Site was designed by Waddy B. Wood, a fashionable Washington architect in 1915. The home today is authentically furnished. Wilson House gives a special glimpse into the private life of Woodrow Wilson while examining the impact of his consequential presidency on present and future generations.

On display are important materials from Wilson’s presidency; objects from the White House; elaborate gifts from around the world; and family items and personal objects. The house is also a living textbook of “modern” American life in the 1920's—from sound recordings to silent films to flapper dresses and zinc sinks.
