Robert E. Lee's Childhood Rental!
An Alexandria, Virginia home where Confederate General Robert E. Lee lived as a child and George Washington slept overnight is for sale at $8.5 million. The six-bedroom, brick home was built in 1795 and was home to the Lee family for about 80 years beginning in 1812 when his destitute father began renting the home. Robert lived there from age 5 until he entered West Point in 1825. The 8,145-square-foot home was also the site of the Stonewall Jackson Museum from 1967 to 2000 when it was sold to a private owner who did a full restoration of the home. src: www.wfp.com
