The Lee-Fendall House Museum is a historic house, located in Old Town, Alexandria. Since its construction in 1785, the house has served as home to members of the Lee family, enslaved and free African American servants, convalescing Union soldiers, the locally prominent Downham family, and powerful labor leader John L. Lewis. Through the changing lives and fortunes of the people who lived and worked in the house, the museum interprets two hundred years of local and national history.
Guided tours are available Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tours are offered at the top of each hour, with the final tour of the day beginning at 3 p.m.
The house is occasionally closed during posted museum hours for special events and private functions. Please check the calendar of events on our website to help you plan your visit.
