The earliest recorded claim to the land was made by the Doeg. Later the Lee family of Virginia owned the land from 1725 to 1839. Richard Bland Lee did not build the main house until 1794. Following the purchase by William Swartwort in 1838, Sully was used as a home, a working farm, or both by a series of private owners. Then in 1958, Sully was acquired by the federal government as a part of the area to be used for the construction of Dulles Airport. Today the Fairfax County Park Authority operates the site with a specific focus on the Lee family.
Sully Historic Site reviews
This was our first time visiting during pouring rain so that changes everything with the outdoor touring but we really enjoyed it. We paid then walked to the house from the visitor center- gift shop..... more »
We took a tour of the house which was really well done. Our group was small and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history of the area. more »
We went to Sully Plantation for the Father's Day car show. It was not a disappointment. Rows and rows of antique cars, great choices of food at the food court, LIVE MUSIC, and a flea market, too. We enjoyed talking to the owners of the cars and hearing the history. It sprinkled for a few minutes and that turned out to be a bonus because we got to see all the owners putting the tops back on the convertibles. So cool! The only downfall was that the food was very expensive. But we had a great time and are looking forward to next year .
It was a greate history museum. The tour was very informative. Just imagine to be able to see the actual items that was used in the past. Wow!
