Sully Historic Site

3650 Historic Sully Way, Chantilly, VA 20151

Sully Historic Site, more commonly known as Sully Plantation, is a national historic place and Virginia landmark in Chantilly, Virginia. The Lee family of Virginia owned the land from 1725 to 1839. 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. Today the Fairfax County Park Authority operates the site with a focus on the Lee family, a historically significant Virginia and Maryland political family, whose many prominent members are known for their accomplishments in politics and the military. Which explains their decision to have Sully "completely furnished with antiquities from the Federal period."
