Another House Lost to History

Yesterday at Culpeper: November 5, 2011

While driving on the eastern edge of Culpeper yesterday afternoon, I saw the home Colonel Charles S. Wainwright wintered in is gone.  The house was in serious disrepair for a number of years.  I had not been by the house in months, so I do when or how it finally came down.

Wainwright, who wrote one of the best journals of the war, had his quarters in a room on the first floor of the house in 1864. 

The photo is from May, 2008.
