I was surprised to discover this little gem just down the road from where I lived. It may have been a rainy day, but this place was truly delightful and nicely restored. The tour started with a very informative 15 minute video and then one of the docents gave us information about the house and the General (usually done outside in the gardens, but we couldn't due to the weather). Then there is a tour throughout the house. The unique thing about this home is that the foundation bought it from the General's family, getting most of the furniture and being told exactly where everything should be placed from their memories. True, some of the knick-knacks and smaller items are donations (the family kept those items). Please go if you are in the Leesburg area. It is worth it.
