From 1785-1903, the house served as the home to 37 members of the Lee family. John L. Lewis, a powerful and controversial labor leader, lived in the house from 1937-1969. Guided by its 1852 inventory, the house is interpreted as a Lee home of the 1850-1870 period. Guided tours are available Weds-Sat 10-4 and Sun 1-4 (last tour begins at 3 pm). House may be closed for special events; please call ahead or check our website calendar for updated information.
