The pre-Civil War residence of legendary Confederate general Robert E. Lee, this Greek revival mansion was taken over by Union troops, and the estate was used to bury the war dead. Overlooking the Potomac and the grounds of what is now Arlington National Cemetery, the home has been restored as a memorial to Lee.

This great old location at Arlington is currently under renovation. I’m told it will be closed for several months. This makes me happy because when I visited last year, I remarked that it needed some sprucing up. There’s a lot of history at this place....More

The exhibit for the Lee Memorial is in the women's memorial building. The passport stamp is in the bookstore in the Welcome center when you first enter. Very confusing. Don't go around noon. Too many people. Must pay for parking.

This is an interesting house and just as interesting a story, but there is really nothing to see. Inside is not worth going to.

My wife absolutely loved this house. So much history & so well preserved for. The sandstone is very well kept. The gardens are beautiful & even the views on top of the hill of the surrounds are just PERFECT. A DEFINITE MUST SEE.

There's a beauty in seeing this old plantation home sit high atop this hallowed site. Though originally meant to slander the Lee family, it's almost as if Lee takes guardianship of those who fill the ranks and files of the honored heros buried here.

The house was closed when I visited over Memorial Day weekend. However, we were able to walk up the fence area and look over.

I would contact the visitors center directly. I am not sure how you would go about booking a ranger-led tour.

Yes. There are park rangers at the visitor center and Arlington house that can answer all questions including the junior ranger program.
