In 2000 Carlisle and District Civic Trust installed a blue plaque on 83 Warwick Road, Cavendish House, which was the former residence of Rev. Thomas Woodrow, the Grandfather of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States.

His mother, Janet, was born in Carlisle, in 1826, the fifth child of the Reverend Thomas Woodrow and his first wife, Marion Williamson from Glasgow.

This house was built in 1831.
