Potts-Fitzhugh House, 607 Oronoco Street, Alexandria, Independent City, VA
Significance: This structure was built contemporaneously with its twin next door at 609 Oronoco, later known as Hallowell School. Together these chaste Georgian buildings confer distinction to the block, a quality richly enhanced by old trees and flanking gardens. These two buildings are intimately associated with the youth of Robert E. Lee and his tutelage by Benjamin Hallowell for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point which he entered in 1825.
