Search Lexington Virginia

On the campus of Washington and Lee University, the chapel was built in 1867 under Lee's supervision. The brick chapel, which is Victorian-style, contains his office, just as he left it on September 28, 1870. A statue of Lee is at the far end of the chapel. Underneath the chapel is where Lee and his family were buried. Some of the items in the museum were owned by Lee.
