We went through this home and it was a great tour. Had lots more items than usually see in the older Presidential homes. Well worth your time to go and visit.

We toured the Woodrow Wilson birthplace and childhood home. There is very little in the home that is original furniture; almost everything is "of the period." The tour was ok if you have the time. The Wilson museum directly next door was somewhat more interesting.
