Washington Lee

By Candice Alexander Art

$5.00

"Washington Lee" is a fleur de lis design by Candice Alexander representing Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. Washington and Lee was founded in 1749 as a small classical school by Scotch-Irish Presbyterian pioneers. In 1796, George Washington endowed the struggling academy with a gift of stock. In gratitude, the school was renamed for the first United States President. In 1865, General Robert E. Lee served as president of the college until his death in 1870, prompting the college to be renamed as Washington and Lee University. Washington and Lee is the ninth oldest institution of higher learning in the United States and the second oldest in Virginia.

Electrocuted or Louisiana Cypress frames available. 

This design is available on coasters, keychains, mugs, oven mitts, pot holders, license plates, phone cases, cutting boards, ornaments and more.
