Presidents Day tours of Wilson’s Boyhood Home canceled



AUGUSTA, Ga. – Historic Augusta has announced that special Presidents Day tours planned for The Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson for Monday, have been canceled “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

The museum’s normal tours will resume on Feb. 24, according to Robyn Macey, programs and marketing director with Historic Augusta.

At that time, tours will again be available Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on the hour from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. by appointment. Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students K-12. Call Historic Augusta at (706) 722-9828, or visit

Wilson lived in the classical revival house at 419 Seventh St. during his formative years in Augusta in the 1860s. The home, a National Historic Landmark, is interpreted in the decade when the future president and his family occupied the home. Tour guides explain the impact of Wilson’s childhood experiences during the Civil War and Reconstruction.
