Saturday, August 23 – LEE FAMILY HOMES WALKING TOUR:
The Lee-Fendall House will offer a guided walking tour of Lee family homes in Historic Old Town on Saturday, August 23. The tour will begin at 10:00 AM at the Lee-Fendall House at 614 Oronoco Street. Members of the Lee family lived in almost two dozen homes over the years, including a cluster of buildings at the intersection of Washington and Oronoco streets – an area once known as “Lee Corner.” Although family members moved into and out of the city over the years, Alexandria remained their home town and lifelong friendships were forged with neighbors and business associates in the city. The tour will last 90 minutes, and will include stops outside the boyhood home of Robert E. Lee, the Lee-Fendall House, and the home of “founding father” Arthur Lee. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students. Tour space is limited, so the purchase of tickets in advance is highly recommended. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes. Purchase tickets through our Online Store.
