Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 19, 1964):
Thomas Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), the twenty-eighth president of the United States, spent his last years (1921-24) here as a semi-invalid, weakened by a stroke and his fight for the League of Nations. The house contains memorabilia associated with the lives of the Wilsons.

Condition:
The Woodrow Wilson House received a Save America's Treasures matching grant in 2001 for $150,000. This grant helped support an exterior envelope restoration completed in 2004. The structure is now in good condition.
