Lee Homes

Virginia Historic Site

Two restored houses were homes associated with the Lee family in Alexandria. The Boyhood Home of Robert E. Lee, at 607 Oronoco Street, is an elegant mansion that has been restored. It was rented by the mother of Robert E. Lee and the widow of General Light Horse Harry Lee of the Revolutionary War. The house is privately owned.

The Lee-Fendall House, at 614 Oronoco Street, was built in 1785 by Philip Fendall, a Lee descendant. Both Light Horse Harry Lee and George Washington were frequent visitors. The house has Lee family furnishings, as well as documents relating to archaeological and historic research. The house is open Wednesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM, and on Sundays from 1 to 4 PM. There is an admission fee for the house. The garden is open during the museum's normal hours and may be visited without purchasing a ticket.
