Sully Historic Plantation
1799 Home of Richard Bland Lee

   Sully Plantation

An oasis of the past, Sully reflects the history of Fairfax County. Completed in 1794, with an additional east wing 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.

On the National Register for Historic Places, and accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, Sully also includes original outbuildings, representative slave quarter and gardens. Guided tours highlight the early late 18th 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.

Sully Historic Site is operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority.
