So glad we took the time to visit Lexington and the Lee Chapel and Museum. The town is historically charming and the museum inside the chapel was very interesting. A must see for anyone visiting Lexington and doesn't take much time.

Enjoyed learning about the history of W & L Univ and the connection between George Washington and Robert E Lee. As a descendant of RE Lee, this place has special meaning.
