EVERY SATURDAY IN MAY – ATTIC & ALLEYS TOUR

Attics and Alleys is a three-hour walking tour featuring the rarely seen spaces of four sites—the Lee-Fendall House, Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum, and Carlyle House—revealing the remnants of stories otherwise hidden.  This behind-the-scenes access is in honor of National Preservation Month, and tickets are limited and reservations are required. Tours will be offered every Saturday in May beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending around noon.  Tickets are $35 per person.  Tour includes stairs, access to confined spaces, and walking over many city blocks, including through alleys.  Walking shoes required.  Tour hosted rain or shine. Tickets available from the Department of Historic Alexandria.
