“The Birth of the American Airborne”
The Lee house was built in 1903 by Jefferson Davis Barnes. William C. Lee and his wife, Dava, bought the house on October 30, 1935 from National Bondholders Corporation for $4,500.00 They rented out the house while Dava lived with Bill at a number of Army posts. Dava occupied the house when Bill became deeply involved with the Airborne Project and was making numerous trips overseas. After Bill’s death, Dave lived on the first floor and rented rooms to occupants until 1975 when she moved to the Golden Years Nursing Home in Falcon, N.C. She lived there until her death in 1983.
