WILSON_970806_02.JPG: Woodrow Wilson House
After leaving the White House in 1921, Woodrow Wilson and his wife retired to this house which was built in 1915. Wilson died here in 1924 and the building is now a museum to the man and his life. It is the only Presidential museum in Washington DC.
Wikipedia Description: Woodrow Wilson House
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Woodrow Wilson House was the residence of the Twenty-Eighth President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson. Located in Washington, D.C. at 2340 S Street NW on Embassy Row, the president lived there after his second term as president. On February 3rd, 1924, Wilson died in an upstairs bedroom. Today the home is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and operated as a museum.
President Woodrow Wilson bought the home on Embassy Row in the last months of his second term as President of the United States as a gift to his wife, Edith Bolling Wilson. He presented the deed to the house to her in December of 1920, all the while he had never actually seen the home in person. The former president and his wife moved into the home on Inauguration Day, which in 1921 was March 4th, not the current date of January 20th. Wilson made several modifications to the house which included: a billiard's room, a stacks for his library of over 8,000 books, an elevator, and a one story brick garage.
It was from the balcony of the house that Wilson addressed a crowd on November 11th, 1923, as his last public appearance. And while the Wilsons had few guests, former British Prime Minister David Lloyd George and former French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau did visit the ailing former president there. After Wilson's death in 1924, Edith Wilson lived there until her death on December 28, 1961. She bequeathed the property and many of its furnishings to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

1997 photos: Since 1984, I've lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.
From 1981 to 2002, photos were taken using a Pentax ME Super camera.
From 1989 to 2002, I was doing all pictures as prints (instead of slides which I had grown up on).
In 1997, at the age of 40, my photo obsession began and I started taking thousands of photos per year.
In September, 2002, I switched to digital cameras and the number of photos exploded.
Image quality is going to be variable because these are scans of slides and/or prints.
The images shown here were scanned in two phases. In the early years of the website, I rescanned a selection of pre-digital images, all at fairly low quality settings. During the COVID pandemic, I launched the Great Rescanning Effort, rescanning ALL of my pre-digital images from various media (prints, slides, negatives, etc) at higher resolution and quality settings. Mutilple versions of images -- some from the initial scannning phase, some from prints, some from slides/negatives -- were posted so there are frequently duplicate images on the same page. At some point, I hope to have time to do a final review and get rid of the duplicates but that'll have to wait until all of the pre-digital images are finally posted.
Trips this year: North Carolina (Dad), Florida (Mom), using a time share in Arkansas to visit Civil War sites in Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Civil War became my excuse to see places I'd never been to in my life and it was a great motivator for 20 years or so.
