The Lee-Fendall House is a historic house museum and garden located at 614 Oronoco St in Old Town Alexandria, just minutes from Watergate of Alexandria condos.
Since its construction in 1785, the house has served as home to thirty-seven members of the Lee family, enslaved and free African American servants, hundreds of recuperating Union soldiers, the prominent Downham family, and the powerful labor leader John L. Lewis.
The property is now owned and managed by the Virginia Trust for Historic Preservation and run as a museum to preserve the architecture and historic value of the house. Through the changing lives and fortunes of the people who lived and worked there, the museum interprets two hundred years of local and national history.
Guided tours are available from Wednesday to Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm. The tours are offered at the top of each hour with the final tour of the day starting at 3 pm. The House Museum and Garden is also available for private rentals.
