The historic Lafayette House, a magnificent Federal home, hosted General Lafayette during his visit in 1824, and home to noted early historical figures including Nelly Custis and Thomas, Ninth Lord Fairfax. Exceptional details of this grand home include the molded elliptical arch of the doorway, the grand entry hall with its graceful arches, floating three-story staircase and a hand-rendered mural of General Lafayette during the Revolutionary War. Grand formal parlors, banquet-sized dining room, the Lafayette Room, and library offer an elegant setting in which to entertain. There are eleven working fireplaces, a delightful brick walled garden and private parking.
