My dream house!

I was going to say that it was my dream house, before I saw Larc's comment with the picture. I thought the house would be long gone. It made my day to see that someone appreciated it enough to save it!

It looks a little better now

Built about 1855, it's the Peers House, where Lee's army fired their last shot before surrendering. George Peers, clerk of court for Appomattox County, rented the house and lived there at the time. He finally bought it in 1870. The house was restored in 1954.

[Just in the nick of time, I'd say. Excellent detective work! - Dave]
