Wilson ran for re-election in 1916--the year that Maury Place was built--and narrowly won. That campaign was much tougher, and Wilson went to bed on election night in 1916 not knowing if he had won or not. He was narrowly re-elected with 277 electoral votes to 254 for challenger Charles Evans Hughes. The new exhibit in Staunton begins a centennial celebration of Wilson's presidency. Staunton is approximately a 90-minute drive from Maury Place at Monument. We also proudly use reproduction White House china for our breakfast service. We do not own the Wilson White House pattern yet, but we are on the look out for it! In addition, the Virginia Historical Society, which is within walking distance of Maury Place at Monument, features a permanent exhibit about the six United States Presidents who were from Virginia, of which Wilson was the last to date.
