Local Garden Club Wins Statewide Awards

Club of Augusta was presented two awards by the Garden Club of Georgia at their

of the garden at the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson with historically
appropriate plant material. Funds for the project were provided by the Sertoma
Club and a Community on My Mind grant.

The Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson is located at 419 Seventh Street
in Augusta. Tours of the museum are offered Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10
am until 5 pm. The last tour each day begins at 4 pm. Admission is $5 for adults,
