Woodrow Wilson Family Home Opening Day
After eight years of research, rehabilitation and restoration, South Carolina’s only presidential site, the Woodrow Wilson Family Home, will reopen to the public on Saturday, Feb. 15.
Join us for our Opening Day Festival on the grounds of the Woodrow Wilson Family Home. Starting with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:30 am, the house will be open for tours from 10 am to 4 pm. We’ll have tours of the grounds and gardens every half hour, food trucks, live music, crafts, shopping and a visit from President Wilson himself!
Historic Columbia will celebrate the reopening of the Woodrow Wilson Family Home with a preview gala on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, and will officially open the house and museum to the public on Saturday, Feb. 15. A full slate of opening weekend activities is being planned, and the house will be open on Monday, February 17 for Presidents Day.
The restoration of the Woodrow Wilson Family Home would not have been possible without the support of Richland County, the Department of the Interior's Save America's Treasures grant program, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, The Humanities Council SC, Columbia Garden Club, NBSC, Southeastern Freight Lines, AgFirst, Childs & Halligan, the Lucy Hampton Bostick Charitable Trust, Keenan Energy Company, The Osceola Foundation and many private donors.
