    The Lee-Fendall House is a family home, located in Old Town, Alexandria. Since its construction in 1785, the house has served as home to 37 members of the Lee family (1785-1903), hundreds of Union soldiers (1863-1865), the prominent Downham family (1903-1937) and powerful labor leader John L. Lewis (1937-1969). Guided by its 1852 inventory, the house is interpreted as a Lee home of the 1850-1870 period.

    An award-winning half-acre garden complements the Lee-Fendall House, including a rose garden, herb garden, English boxwoods and more.
