Lee’s Boyhood Home Marker, 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.
