Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Museum
History, Heritage, and Romance.
These three words describe the story of the collection of artifacts, photographs, china, and furniture on display at the Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Museum. Each helps to illustrate the story inherent to the life of Edith Bolling Wilson. The Museum includes themes such as caregiving (Mrs. Wilson was a caregiver to many family members, as well as to the president when he was incapacitated from a stroke during his presidency). The other theme the Museum explores is Mrs. Wilson as a role model for current and future generations.
