Overview:

The Leesylvania property is associated with the flight of two runaway slaves as well as a slave who escaped in 1848. A band of escaped slaves also informed Union soldiers of Confederate activity at the property's Freestone Point in September 1861. Learn about aspects of the park's rich and diverse history as we celebrate Black History Month. Displays will illustrate the park's  inclusion into the National Park Services Network to Freedom program.  For more information please call 703-583-6904.
