The President Woodrow Wilson House is the home in Washington, D.C., to which President and Mrs. Wilson moved the day that they left the White House in 1921. President Wilson is the only President to remain living in Washington after leaving office. The home was built in 1915-1916 in a Georgian Revival style and is located in the Sheridan Kalorama neighborhood, just steps from Embassy Row. In her will Mrs. Wilson left the home and its contents to the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1961. The Woodrow Wilson House has been faithfully restored to the period when the Wilsons lived here, replete with their furniture, art, clothing, gifts of state, and Presidential memorabilia. Artifacts on display include the dip pen with which President Wilson signed the Declaration of War in 1917, the Gobelins tapestry that was a gift from France, the movie projector that was a gift from Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, and the mosaic that was a gift from Pope Benedict XV. The home presents a magnificent look back in time and helps explain how remarkable it was that, immediately following the First World War, President Wilson imagined the world at peace and proposed a plan to achieve that vision. The Woodrow Wilson House is a National Historic Landmark and a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
