Woodrow Wilson Boyhood Home, 1859, Augusta

Aaron H. Jones built this house, which was soon sold to the Presbyterian Church for use as the manse. The Reverend Dr. Joseph Ruggles Wilson and his family were the first occupants of the house. One of his children was Thomas Woodrow Wilson, who would go on to become the 28th President of the United States. Wilson remembered his time in Augusta fondly. The house is now owned and operated by Historic Augusta, Inc., as The Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson.

    You really hit the jack pot with your trips to Burke and Richmond Counties. There much Georgia beauty and history abound. Makes one proud to be from Georgia.
