Arlington House, the Robert E. Lee Memorial, unlike the surrounding cemetery, is administered by the National Park Service. First intended as a memorial to the first president, the estate has a fascinating history that is tied to the families of George Washington, Robert E. Lee and events of the Civil War. Open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Closed December 25 and January 1. Free.
