The Friends of Lee Chapel
The Lee Chapel, resting on the hill below the historic Colonnade, has been the heart of the Washington and Lee University campus since 1868. Today, the beautiful historic building, filled with tradition and a sense of heritage, remains a meeting place for University lectures, concerts, convocations and contemplation. But it is so much more.

Creating a connection to the past by visiting the resting places of Dr. William Graham, the first president of Liberty Hall Academy, Robert E. Lee and even Lee’s famous horse, Traveller.
