Summary
  • This accession is a print of a perspective view of a proposed design for the Confederate Soldiers Home. This particular scheme shows an elaborate crenellated Gothic-style range of buildings, centered on a chapel wing. The design was never constructed
  • The Confederate Soldier's Home was organized 18 April 1883 when Lee Camp, No. 1, Confederate Veterans assumed the task of caring for Confederate veterans of the Civil War. Land on the Boulevard in Richmond for the Home was purchased 12 November 1884, and cottages, a chapel, and additional buildings were constructed for the former soldiers. The site of the Confederate Soldiers Home is now occupied by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
