The Sully Historic Site commemorates the long and interesting history of Fairfax. It was once the home of Richard Bland Lee, who was the region's first representative in Congress. He lived there with his wife until the early 1800s. In 1976, Lee's former home became a permanent part of Fairfax County's collection of parks.

When you come to explore the historic home, start at the visitor center. It offers some insight into the life that Lee and his wife enjoyed together at the homestead. Schedule a tour for more behind-the-scenes info. You can also weave throughout the grounds via the system of trails surrounding the home. The Sully Historic Site also plays host to special events, from birthday parties to field trips, and regularly hosts special classes and camps, as well.
