Robert E. Lee's Boyhood Home is for Sale The historic Virginia home that Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee grew up in hit the market in April 2018 for $8.5 million. (Trapasso, C.) Robert E. Lee's father Henry rented the home in 1812, according to The Washington Post. The family lived there for over 80 years, including Robert E. Lee from age five to when he went to West Point in 1825. He again visited five years after the Civil War ended, The Post reported. (Leayman, E.) The home's other claim to fame is that President George Washington also dined and lodged there before the Lee family moved in. (Trapasso, C.) Built in 1795, the brick house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. (Trapasso, C.) The home had been used as a residence until 1966. The Stonewall Jackson Memorial Foundation purchased the home and opened it to the public. Unable to make ends meet, the foundation sold the home in 2000 to Mark and Ann Kington for $2.5 million. (Trapasso, C.)
