The Lee-Fendall House, located at 614 Oronoco Street in historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, will offer a special guided walking tour of Lee family homes this Saturday, August 23.
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 hometown 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 priced at $12 for adults and $8 for students.
Tour space is limited, so the purchase of tickets in advance is highly recommended. The tour will begin at 10 a.m. and leave from the Lee-Fendall House. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes.
