Grant Objectives: Restoration and Structural Repair of Lee Fendall House

Grant to Lee Fendall House Museum

Built in 1785 as an urban plantation, the Lee Fendall House was the home to thirty-seven members of the Lee Family and is listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places. In 2004, the Trust gave money to help with the restoration of the summer beam and sill, two of the main supporting structures for the main house. Throughout the years, these structural features had deteriorated to the point that the structural integrity of the house was being compromised. The help from the Trust, along with other members of the community, assured that the summer beam and sill were replaced and the house was once again structurally sound.
