Ellen Louise Axson grew up in Rome, Georgia, where her father, the Reverend S. E. Axson, was a Presbyterian minister. Thomas Woodrow Wilson first saw her when he was about six and she only a baby. In 1883, as a young lawyer from Atlanta, “Tommy” visited Rome and met “Miss Ellie Lou” again—a beautiful girl now, keeping house for a bereaved father.
Ellen also designed and established the White House Rose Garden at the executive mansion. The Ellen Axson Wilson Homecoming of 2014 celebrated 100 years after her death in August 1914. Her bronze memorial dedicated in 2015 commemorates the achievements of this amazing Renaissance woman, who not only touched Rome, but also the world around her.
