Woodlawn - Real Alexandria Haunt
Originally part of George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate, Woodlawn was bequeathed to his nephew, Lawrence Lewis, and Lewis’ new bride, Eleanor Parke Custis (Martha Washington’s granddaughter), as a wedding present in 1799. The gift included 2,000 acres of land and the commission of a house which took five years to build. The home is now a museum, and is rumored to be haunted by some of the past residents who lived here over the centuries.
