Robert E. Lee and his family are buried here. The ex-Confederate commander served as college president after the war, dying at his home a few steps away from the chapel in 1870. Lee's office was in one of the rooms in the lower level of the building. It remains as he left it. His horse, Traveller, is buried just outside the Chapel.

Open 9 am–5 pm Monday-Saturday, 1–5 pm Sunday (April–October), closes one hour earlier other months. Chapel tours are free; donations welcome.
