Ceremonial Laying of Wreath on President Wilson’s Tomb

Friday, December 28, 2018 | 10:00am

We invite you to join us as representatives from the U.S. military services lay a wreath on President Wilson’s tomb on the 162nd anniversary of his birth. Following the presentation of the wreath, the Woodrow Wilson House will honor First Lady Edith Bolling Wilson with a special floral tribute commemorating the anniversary of her death which falls on December 28th as well. Edith Wilson, a lover of orchids, inspired Chadwick & Son Orchids to develop an orchid named for her that will be included in the spray.

This event is free and open to the public.

NOTE: This event begins at 10 am, when doors open to the public. If you plan on attending the wreath laying, please arrive in advance and look for signs directing you to a before-hours entrance that will be open from 9:30 am.
