The Foreign Press Center accompanies international media from China, Russia, Bulgaria, and Ghana to the Woodrow Wilson House in Washington, DC.  Owned and operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this circa 1915 home is the only presidential museum in the District.  The Director and Curator gave the tour, explaining in depth Wilson's role in shaping global foreign policy and the modern American presidency.  The journalists asked many questions regarding Wilson's role at the Versailles Treaty negotiations in Paris, and his domestic views on race, the economy, and women's suffrage.
