Legend tells us that General Robert E. Lee boarded his horse in this carriage house -- most likely when his daughters were attending a private school across the street, Stuart Hall.  It still has the very high ceilings, some original exposed brick wall, the old beams -- but everything else has been totally renovated and restored.
