**2020 update: The main house at Sully Historic Site will be closed to the public for the first five months of the new year. The historic house will undergo structural repair and maintenance, and it is scheduled to be closed from January 1, 2020, into May. The historic site’s grounds, outbuildings and visitor center will remain open, and the center will remain the main point of contact for all visitors. The visitor center will be open Wednesdays through Sundays. Tours of the Fairfax County Park Authority property will resume in March, weather permitting. Cooking classes and demonstrations, scout programs, and all outreach programs will continue.**


The home of Richard Bland Lee, northern Virginia’s first congressman, the main house at Sully was built in 1794. The house is furnished with antiques of the federal period. Outbuildings include a kitchen, smokehouse, slave quarters and stone dairy. Formal and kitchen gardens complement the house. Educational programs, craft demonstrations and living history events are offered throughout the year, along with guided tours, highlighting the early 19th century life of the Lee Family, tenant farmers, and enslaved African Americans. The site is included on the National Register of Historic Places. You can also plan events or parties at Sully Historic Site, which are fun for the kids and easy for you. The unique location and generous variety of activities guarantees that your party will be unforgettable!

  • Description: The Wagstaff Conference Room is named in honor of Edward “Eddy” Wagstaff, Sully‘s first curator and the main person that helped save Sully from destruction in the late 1950’s when Sully and several other properties were going to be destroyed to make room for nearby Dulles Airport. “Eddy” also kept the property open and toured visitors around for several years before the Park Authority could fully staff the park and restore the beautiful buildings. The private conference room is ideal for team meetings. It comfortably accommodates approximately 16 people, with flexible seating and table space.
