  1. What’s also interesting is that in the comments there is a photo of the house as it looks now. It was restored in 1954.

    According to the comment – “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. “
