Wilson and Slavery Tour
May 05, 2017
“I am not at all afraid at nights – for the servants- two women and a man – sleep in the basement just below me – and are reliable…” Jessie Woodrow Wilson, April 1857. As it turns out those “servants” were actually slaves, rented by the church for use in the Manse from local farmers. Join a special guided tour developed by curator Andrew Phillips focusing on the experiences of the enslaved people who lived and labored in the Presbyterian Manse where Woodrow Wilson was born. The tour begins at the museum front desk. Friday, April 7th at 11:30 am, and should last about 30 minutes. The cost for this special tour is $25.00 and includes the regular house tour and the museum.
