*UPDATE*

I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Here is a quick sticky link to my Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge and Read-a-Thon.

Following their time in Virginia, the Wilson family, including 2 year old Tommy Woodrow Wilson (he was going by Tommy at that point) moved to Augusta, Georgia. This house was also known as The Manse and was the home of the Presbyterian pastors on the local parish. The Wilsons remained here for approximately 11 years before again relocating to Columbia, South Carolina. The Manse in Augusta stands as the home that Woodrow Wilson lived in the longest.

The Manse was acquired by Historic Augusta, INC in 1991 and restoration was undertaken to restore the home to its state in the 1860’s when the Wilson’s lived there.

When you visit The Manse your admission includes a 45 minute guided tour of the house. Tickets are $5 for adults and Free-$3 for children depending on age. You can also view the house gardens which are kept up with seasonal selections that would have been used in gardens during the time the Wilsons lived in the house.
