A Southern, Greek Revival mansion once owned by General Robert E. Lee of the Confederate Army, Arlington House is much more than just a beautiful house. Steeped in history and surrounded by hardwood forest, the 1,100 acre plantation was the general’s residence before the war started. It’s now a standing piece of history and a tribute to his military service before, during, and after the war.

Long before it was General Lee’s home, the house claimed its place in US history as the home of George Washington Parke Custis — Martha Washington’s grandson. G.W.P. Custis built one of the nation’s first museums of historic American artifacts, largely from mementos of his childhood at Mount Vernon.

The 19th century mansion was never intended to be the site of one of the country’s most significant military cemeteries. Bodies were buried here during the Civil War, in part to ensure General Lee was unable to return home after the war ended. What began then has since grown into the Arlington National Cemetery. The estate overlooks the cemetery and the Potomac River, allowing for beautiful views of Washington DC.

Arlington National Cemetery Private Walking Tour

Across the Potomac River is our country’s most recognized and respected burial sites, Arlington National Cemetery. During the American Civil War, these hallowed grounds were occupied by the Confederate States Army and used as a military stronghold. The restored Arlington House, once the home of General Robert E. Lee, stands in the center of the property. Despite General Lee’s defiance, the building is a protected memorial today due to his aid in uniting the land after the Confederacy’s defeat. Unity is a present focus of the cemetery as the monuments to the former adversaries of Lincoln and Lee sit together with the Memorial Bridge connecting them. This enormous refuge nestled in an otherwise urban landscape is the final resting place of many: war heroes, freed slaves, even Presidents like John F. Kennedy. Famed sites, such as the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier lay on the property with other attractions the Marine Corp Memorial, Air Force Memorial, and Pentagon just nearby.
