Event Description

Step back in time for an exclusive evening at the Presidential home of Woodrow Wilson to experience the elegance of the roaring 20s with an evening of music and the excitement of a Presidential vintage games night. The evening also includes wine and a specialty vintage cocktail with light appetizers inspired by the era served at the beginning of the event. 

While entertaining in the fully restored rooms of this Georgian revival townhouse, you will have the opportunity to view elaborate gifts of state from around the world, important materials from Wilson’s presidency, objects from the White House, family items and personal objects. 

President Wilson was the first US President to travel in Europe, and received numerous state gifts which (unlike the leaders of today) he was able to keep.  On display are gifts from the allied heads of state including a Gobelin Tapestry from the people of France, a mosaic from Pope Benedict XV and autographed portraits of the British Monarchs.  As you enjoy your evening, museum staff will be on hand in each major room to highlight artifacts from around the world.
