Many people do not know this, but Robert E. Lee spent his final years as President of (then) Washington College in Lexington, VA. The college today is known as Washington & Lee...for obvious reasons. Given that W&L is one of the colleges I considered attending as an undergrad student, I enjoy visiting the campus every now and then when I'm in the area. Every time I go, I learn something new. For example, during my last trip, I was able to take a quick tour of the actual home in which Robert E. Lee lived while serving as President (see photo). The home is very much in line with the architecture of the campus as a whole and fits in quite nicely with the overall ambiance.
