Lee-Fendall House Museum & Garden

The Lee-Fendall House, located in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, is a showcase of American history from three different centuries.

Since its construction in 1785, the house has served as home to thirty-seven members of the Lee family (1785-1903), hundreds of convalescing Union soldiers during the American Civil War (1863-1865), Alexandria’s locally prominent Downham family (1903-1937), and one of our nation’s most controversial and significant 20th century labor leaders, John L. Lewis (1937-1969).

Furnishings on display include a splendid collection of Lee family heirlooms and period pieces produced by local and regional craftsmen. Historical records, including inventories of the house continue to guide the museum’s continuing restoration and furnishing efforts.

Our programming, includes regular house tours as well as special themed tours of the property and the surrounding community, author talks and historical lectures. We also host special-occasion events for the Alexandria community, including our annual Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Pumpkin Hunt, Christmas candlelight tours, and tea programs throughout the year.

The Lee-Fendall House Museum & Garden and Virginia Trust for Historic Preservation are a registered charitable organization within the Commonwealth of Virginia. A financial statement is available upon written request from the Office of Consumer Affairs.
