Photos on Friday: Lee Fendall House in Alexandria

Earlier in the month we spent the day in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. We started the day wandering around the weekly farmer's market and revisiting some of the sights. After we watched the annual Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend parade, we decided to head over to Lee-Fendall House on Oronoco St.
Built in the late 1700s, the house belonged to various members of the Lee family (as in "Light Horse Harry" Lee and Robert E. Lee) for more than 100 years. Interpretation is of the house is of how the house existed in the period from 1850-70. 

Today's Photos on Friday post shows the house decorated for the holidays. (I'll be doing a more lengthy post about Lee-Fendall House in the future).
