SATURDAYS IN MAY – ATTICS & ALLEYS TOURS
MAY 21 – RAISE A GLASS, RAISE THE CHIMNEY, 7-10 PM: According to local legend, Robert Downham, then-owner of the Lee-Fendall House and local liquor wholesaler, lost his license after news spread around Alexandria of his entertaining President Woodrow Wilson with lavish amounts of alcohol at a dinner party. One hundred years later, we are celebrating the occasion with a Prohibition party in our garden. Enjoy a glass (or two) of bubbly, win something in our silent auction, and celebrate the Lee-Fendall’s history! The proceeds from this event will be going to restore the Lee-Fendall’s chimney. Tickets are $50 in advance through the museum’s Online Store, or $75 for a VIP reception ticket (reception starts at 6 pm).
