America’s 28th president was too ill to attend the inauguration of his successor. Instead he was driven to his new home in the prestigious Kalorama neighborhood (yes, the very same neighborhood where former president Barack Obama currently lives). His final residence is preserved as he left it. The story here focuses on Wilson’s Washington years (1912–24), examining his public persona while allowing a peek behind the draperies into his personal life, much of it quite tragic. Furnishings, White House objects, personal memorabilia, and elaborate gifts of state help tell the story. A mosaic of St. Peter hangs in the drawing room, a gift from Pope Benedict XV when the Wilsons toured Europe at the conclusion of World War I. A portrait of his wife Edith hangs above the mantle.
