Arlington House, The Robert E. Lee Memorial

  • Metro: Arlington Cemetery

Former home of the Civil War's Confederate General, located in Arlington National Cemetery.

The majestic Greek Revival home of Robert E. Lee and his family sits high on a hill overlooking Arlington National Cemetery, the Potomac River and the District of Columbia. It offers breathtaking views and has been restored as a memorial.

The National Park Service said the mansion is closed for renovations from March 19 through fall 2019. NPS said, "When the project is completed, visitors will see Arlington House as it was in 1860, with rooms restored to their historical appearance. Additionally, the quarters for the enslaved people of Arlington House will be restored to better represent and tell their stories."
