Woodrow Wilson House
President Wilson lived in this Georgian-Revival house after he left office, creating a comfortable, unpretentious residence with his second wife, Edith. He is the only president to remain in Washington after office. The couple collected items from all over the world, filling their home with eclectic wares. There is a baseball signed by Great Britain's King George V and a silent movie projector given to the Wilsons by the actor Douglas Fairbanks. The bedroom is modeled after the couple's White House sleeping quarters.
Great feature about this presidential house is that you can reserve your tour online and plan your visit before your go! The guides will be ready to greet you and tell you about the things you are interested in. Do plan to spend a good hour and a half - but it is well worth the time. I was the only person on my tour.
