Woodrow Wilson's Columbia Home Reopening to Public

The South Carolina home where President Woodrow Wilson lived as a teenager is reopening to the public as a museum not only about the politician but also the Reconstruction Era.

On Saturday, visitors will once again be able to see the home where the 28th president of the United States moved at age 13 and spent his teenage years. Various exhibits use technology to teach about Wilson's formative years in the 1870s and the history of Columbia during that time.

The home where Wilson lived while his father taught at the Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Columbia has been closed since 2005 to replace the foundation and make other repairs.

The $3.6 million restoration project was funded by tax money and private donations.
