Things to See and Do at Sully

Sully Historic Site is a charming and historic place to visit. The feature attraction, of course, is the site's history and historic structures. You can peek into the kitchen with its open hearth and walk around the outbuildings on your own. The grounds are lovely and a comfortable place for simple strolling. There are gardens to enjoy, and there are picnic tables on site. The visitor center includes an information area, rest rooms, a gift shop and a rentable meeting room. Staff in the center can answer all questions about the park. There's a brochure in the center you can pick up for a self-guided walking tour of the 31-acre site.

Programs and Organized Activities

Tours of the site's historic house are suspended until June 2020 because of repair work at the house. The park hosts scout programs, teas, birthday parties and public classes and camps. Homeschoolers can arrange educational visits. Events during the year include a classic car show on Father's Day that draws thousands of people to the site. There are candlelight tours in December, an All Hallows Eve event in the fall, and the site hosts thousands of visitors annually for Springfest, Fairfax County's annual celebration of Earth Day. Volunteers help with programs and maintenance, and they serve as docents.
