Long Description:
E 91

Robert E. Lee left this home that he
loved so well to enter West Point.
After Appomattox he returned and
climbed the wall to see "If the
snowballs were in bloom." George
Washington dined here when it was the
home of William Fitzhugh, Lee's kinsman
and his wife's Grandfather. Lafayette
visited here in 1824.
