      This house in downtown Augusta was occupied for 11 years by Presbyterian minister Joseph Ruggles Wilson and his family, which included the future 28th president of the United States, who was age 3 when the family moved in. In this house young Tommy, as he was known, heard that Lincoln had been elected president, and later watched as Confederate president Jefferson Davis was led through the streets in chains on his way to prison. This restored and elegantly appointed home is open to the public for guided 45 minute tours.

      If you go:
      Tours are given Thursday through Saturday from 10 to 4, on the hour. The house next door, which serves as Visitors Center for the Wilson home, was the home of Joseph Lamar, future U.S. Supreme Court justice.
