Lee Chapel

Lee Chapel is located on the campus of Washington & Lee University, in Lexington, Virginia. General Robert Edward Lee and his immediate family are all buried in a family crypt under the Chapel, and you can visit the Chapel to see the family crypt and General Lee's university office (as it was the day he died in October 1870) and museum. Gen Henry "Lighthorse" Lee, Robert's father, is also buried in the Lee Chapel.

 

There is a nice gift shop inside that offers many items about the Lee Family and their ancestory (Lee's wife is Martha Washington's Great Grand Daugher). No photography is allowed inside the Chapel!
