A fascinating gem in the Civil War history. The period furniture and the people are stunning. Mr. Moore was brilliant with his knowledge of the property and the war overall! Can't wait to come back!

The house is lovely. Beautifully restored with period furniture. The docent was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. Loved the period clothes. Well worth making the time to visit.

Maybe if I was a history buff I might like this tour. I was just reminded of a stupid part of our history. I see no need to dwell on it.

We visited Lee Hall Mansion on a rainy day, and needed something indoors to do. It is an attraction that takes about an hour to tour, and is not terribly exciting. If you like history, you will appreciate the glimpse into the bridge between pre...More

The house itself and additional building are nice and the grounds are well maintained. Nothing really original there in the house but one can easily get the gist of life in 1800's Virginia. Very enthusiastic tour guide; she seemed very passionate about the home and...More

Really great tour about the family that build the Lee house. Really gave a lot of good info about how each room was used. Could have mentioned slavery more than 0 times.
