Walter Reed Birthplace

Walter Reed was the youngest of five children and became  doctor at the age of 18 1/2. He was and still is the youngest MD to graduate from the University of Virginia. He is credited with confirming the theory that mosquitoes were the cause of the spread of yellow fever. When you start to think your home is not large enough, take a trip to a historical home owned by an average person. Space was used very efficiently to create a comfortable home. We hope to take the whole family to tour the inside of the house sometime soon.
