Visit Sully Historic Site In Fairfax County

Sully Historic site reflects the history of the Fairfax County and is considered an oasis of the past. Completed in 1799 by Richard Bland Lee, the main house at Sully combines aspects of Georgian and Federal architecture. Richard Bland Lee was Northern Virginia’s first Representative to Congress, as well as General Robert E. Lee’s uncle.

Sully Historic Site

Sully also includes original outbuildings, representative slave quarter and gardens on the National Register for Historic Places, and accredited by the American Association of Museums. Guided tours of the Sully Historic site highlight the early 19th-century life of the Richard Bland Lee family, tenant farmers and enslaved African Americans. Programs reflect the history of Fairfax County through the 20th century.

The Fairfax County Park Authority agreed to operate the site as a county historical park and has since acquired an additional 60 acres to bring the total size of Sully Historic Site to approximately 120 acres. The site’s historic period of significance encompasses the ownership of Richard Bland Lee and Francis Lighfoot Lee (1787–1838). Interpretation at the site reflects the ownership of its founder Richard Bland Lee, which explains the park authority decision to have Sully “completely furnished with antiquities from the Federal period.
