A truly impressive house, full of priceless artifacts, lovingly kept and preserved for decades by Wilson's widow. One of those few historic sites that was preserved as such by the history maker who lived there, Edith Wilson. I had the pleasure of being the sole visitor the day I was there. The guide was knowledgable and friendly.
Even from a purely architectual point of view, the house is fascinating. The priceless historic contents and the story of its occupants make it most significant. It's about a 20 minute brisk walk from the Dupont Circle Metro station. Beware, though, it's almost all uphill.
Woodrow Wilson is not one of my favorite presidents, but his residency in this remarkable house has been thoughtfully and carefully presented. Well done!
