Boyhood Home of Woodrow Wilson
This colonial-style home is where the 28th U.S. president lived for 11 years of his childhood. Although Wilson was born in Virginia and would live in other states after Georgia, it is said that this manse had the most profound influence on his later policies as president. It was here that he witnessed the Civil War and its aftermath. Many historians believe that his close proximity to the war prevented him from allowing the U.S. to fight in WWI.
