Lee-Fendall House's Annual Speakeasy Party Returns !

About this event

The 20s are back in a big way! Please join the friends, board, and staff of the Lee-Fendall House Museum in our historic garden on Saturday, September 25th for Sips & Secrets: A Speakeasy Night.

Sips & Secrets honors Lee-Fendall House's Prohibition-era history, when we were home to one of Alexandria's liquor wholesalers (and possible bootleggers!). It features lots of fun speakeasy surprises, including dancing to live jazz and ragtime, and costume contest for the best flapper or mobster style, 1920s-style cocktails, and more. This year, the event will raise funds for the repair of our 220-year-old brick garden wall, of which a 70-foot section collapsed in early summer, while also supporting the museum's ongoing work in historic preservation, education, and community engagement.

A private VIP pre-reception will precede the main event. Current Lee-Fendall House Museum & Garden members may attend as VIPs for the price of general admission - please email megan.ritter@leefendallhouse.org or call (703) 548-1789 for a registration code.

Organizer of Sips & Secrets: A Speakeasy Night

The Lee-Fendall House 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, hundreds of convalescing Union soldiers during the American Civil War, and one of our nation’s most controversial and significant 20th century labor leaders, John L. Lewis.
