Woodrow Wilson birthday celebration

To commemorate the 160th anniversary of Woodrow Wilson’s birthday, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum will hold a special birthday celebration on Wednesday, December 28th from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM to honor our 28th President.

The Birthplace and Museum will be open to visitors at no charge. There will be children’s activities, music by Bill Harouff and the Stonewall Flutes of the Shenandoah, and light refreshments.  Members of the Pierce-Arrow Committee will be on hand to provide unique information about President Wilson’s 1919 Pierce-Arrow limousine. This year’s Open House is made possible through the generosity of our sponsor Union Bank and Trust.

Robin von Seldeneck, President and CEO of the WWPL, said, “December 28th is one of our favorite days of the year at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library, as we celebrate the birth of Woodrow Wilson with an event for the entire community.”

The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library is open daily March 1 through December 31st and Thursday through Monday in January and February for visitors from around the world.  The Presidential Library sponsors educational programming for students of all ages each year, and owns a large collection of Wilson and Wilson-era documents, many of which can be accessed on-line at the digital archive, the Wilson Library at www.woodrowwilson.org.
