The Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson

The boyhood home of the 28th President of the United States, located at 419 7th Street in downtown Augusta is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The house was built in 1859 and sold to the Trustees of the First Presbyterian Church. The home was then offered to Reverend Joseph Ruggles Wilson in 1860 as incentive to stay in Augusta as the Church's Pastor. When the Wilson family left Augusta in 1870, the future President was 14 years old, having spent the formative years of his childhood in Augusta.
