After 1883, the interior was remodeled and an earlier frame addition was rebuilt. On September 14, 1901, in the library of the Ansley Wilcox House, Vice-President Theodore Roosevelt took the Oath of Office of the President of the United States. The house was declared a National Historic Site in 1966.
