The program, “Woodrow Wilson: Columbia Resident and Later President” will focus on Wilson’s teenage years which were spent in Columbia from 1870-1874 and will be held at the Woodrow Wilson Family home at 1705 Hampton Street at 10 a.m.
The Woodrow Wilson Family Home reopened in February after a 9 year restoration. Rather than focusing exclusively on Wilson’s life and family, the house has expanded its scope to include the Reconstruction period after the Civil War and its effects on the Wilson family, the local community and South Carolina. It also explores its effects on Wilson’s thinking as an adult and as president.
All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia's Homeschool Friday programs. Each month's program includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites. Homeschool Fridays programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels.
Reservations are suggested and can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 803-252-1770 ex 36. The cost of the program is $5 per student.
