Sully was the home of Richard Bland Lee, northern Virginia’s first congressman. The main house and surviving outbuildings are original to the site and were built in 1794-1801. The house is furnished in the style of the Federal period, and the outbuildings include a kitchen, smokehouse, slave quarter, and stone dairy. A formal garden in the late-18th century style is also available and showcases native plants and herbs, vegetables, and flowers. 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 and the enslaved people who lived and worked at Sully. The site is included on the National Register of Historic Places and on the Underground Railroad. 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!

Sully Historic Site Meeting Facility

- 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. Currently closed for reservations—please check our website for current meeting room reservation information.
