No trip to Lexington VA is complete without visiting this impressive university ! From the Lee chapel and museum to the Hillel house, to the buildings and churches that make up this institute of higher learning, every building is a sight to see.

My son and I walked the campus here and the beauty and history is just amazing. They just don't build things like this anymore. Highly recommend this experience if you love history..
