Site reflects the history of Fairfax County. Sully is the
late 18th century home of Richard Bland Lee, northern Virginia's
first congressman and uncle of Robert E. Lee. The farm contains the
Federal style main house, built in 1794, four original outbuildings,
a representative slave quarter, and gardens. Guided hourly tours
highlight the early 19th century life of Richard Bland Lee and his
family, as well as tenant farmers and enslaved African Americans.
Sully also offers a variety of special programs and field trips that
reflect the history and life in Fairfax County from the 18th century
throughout the 20th century.
