Great tour guide who made the tour very interesting

This was our first stop on the way to Williamsburg, Virginia. I am so glad we made time to stop here because we might not have had time at the end of our vacation. The tour guide was very friendly and full of knowledge. It's amazing this house is still standing after all these years. I would definitely recommend this... More

Had toddler daughter and husband in tow who did not want to get out of the car. So, I walked around the grounds and took lots of pictures. I did not go inside, but per the reviews it doesn't sound like I missed much. I am in love with the Civil War and their mansions, so I was happy to... More

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 and post civil war. I was acutely uncomfortable with the plantation south, but it was... 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 its history. There were areas she pointed out to us but would not allow entry,... 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.

Williamsburg! The gate was open though no tours were offered on this day(as at Endview). The house,out buildings and grounds are well maintained and were well marked with exterior historic markers for us to view the buildings,learn the history and take pictures! Well worth a short stop(or long if open for tours) for history lovers of the colonial and ante... More

Interesting mansion. The lady that gave the tour is obviously there because she is personally interested in the subject. Well worth the time to tour Lee hall.

While not the most historical mansion in the area, it was a nice peek into local history around the time of the civil war. The guide was wonderful and super sweet. We did not get a chance to explore the grounds due to the rain but if I'm ever in the area again I would like to. If you have... More

Interesting mansion near Yorktown is owned by the city of Newport News. They have done a good job renovating it and work is still being done. No original furnishings, but it does have some excellent period pieces and a small museum. We visited in April and it was open on a Monday but closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. It is... More

This is a very historically significant structure in the Peninsula Campaign of the Civil War. It's amazing how well it has been maintained over the years.
