Arlington House, The Robert E. Lee Memorial

— Arlington National Cemetery —

Mrs. Robert E. Lee took special interest in the flower garden, and she helped shape its final design. In the center stood a large, latticed arbor, its walls covered with flowering jasmine.

The Lees used the arbor for summer entertaining and as a restful place to read and paint. In 1884, the garden was destroyed to make space for a cemetery memorial. It is now being restored to its 1861 appearance.
