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.
