South Carolina's Presidential Residence

The Woodrow Wilson Family Home
Historic Columbia Foundation

  History abounds in South Carolina. Part of that history is the only home in South Carolina occupied by a future president of the United States: The Woodrow Wilson Family Home in Columbia. Built in 1871, it was the home of a teenage “Tommy” Wilson until he went off to college and his family moved to North Carolina in 1874. Fielding Freed of Historic Columbia, which runs the house museum, and USC historian Tom Brown talk about the home, Wilson and his family, and the preservation effort that saved the future president’s home from the wrecking ball.
