    This cemetery is absolutely huge. It is extremely moving. The men that are buried here gave everything so that we can have the many freedoms that we enjoy. I highly recommend taking the bus ride around the park it’s a great way to see the park and it’s informative and you get a great narration while you’re traveling through the park.

    The house is newly renovated and the National Park Service has done a credible job restoring the interior and exterior to what Robert Lee would have seen in the 1800’s. There is a small museum of relevant items of historical interest. The grabber is the location. Best photo op in DC is from the front of the house looking downhill to the Potomac. You can spot all the memorials and really get a view of what Pierre L’Enfant envisioned for Washington DC. In fact, L’Enfant is interred just in front of the Lee house. The Lee house is one of the big three at Arlington National Cemetery, the others being the Tomb of the Unknowns (and the famous changing of the guard) and the Kennedy Graves (and the eternal flame). Strongly recommend downloading the Arlington National Cemetery App (ANC Explorer) from either the Apple iTunes store or the Google Play store.

    Wow this is the highest point of the Cemetery. Beautiful scenic view towards DC and its monuments. The house is beautifully restored and it is climate controlled to give visitors a well deserve break from the walk up.

    It’s fun to vsit the old family home of Lee, where he lived before they turned his backyard into a cemetary. But we weer husseled through through with a bit too many visitors. Not to be missed though.

    Very cool to see. Right on top of the Arlington Cemetery. The view from the hill looks across the bridge and lines up perfectly geometrically with the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and the National mall. The house itself wasn’t the most interesting, but there was a cool board showing how Robert E Lee’s life was related with George Washington. Not surprising I guess, but very interesting.
