We went here as part of the Historic Alexandria Candlelight tour. Since its construction in 1785 the house has served as home to thirty-seven members of the Lee family (1785–1903), hundreds of convalescing Union soldiers (1863–1865), the prominent Downham family (1903–1937), and powerful labor leader John L. Lewis (1937–1969). The Lee-Fendall House serves not only as an educational historic house museum but also as the setting for weddings and gala social affairs. Do not miss the 2nd floor exhibit - A Thomas Nast Christmas!!
