The McLean House near Appomattox, Virginia is within the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. The house was owned by Wilmer McLean and his wife Virginia near the end of the American Civil War. It served as the location of the surrender of the Confederate army of General Robert E. Lee on April 9, 1865, after a nearby battle.
The farm house represents the historical style of construction in Piedmont Virginia of the mid-nineteenth century. The building has a history of attempted preservation of disassembled parts. It ultimately ended up in the hands of the National Park Service and reconstructed. The house was made available for public viewing in 1949. It was recorded in the National Register of Historic Places in 1966 and in the National Park Service's database of Official Structures in 1989.
