The Lee-Fendall House Museum recently launched its landmark 50th year as a museum by taking guests back in time to the Roaring Twenties. Built in 1785, the museum has become a mainstay of Alexandria’s preservation community. Sips + Secrets serves as an annual fundraiser to maintain the house as well as support the landmark’s rotating exhibits and programs.
Guests were dressed to impress and danced the night away to live jazz by Accidental Red. Dance troupe Fidget Feet was also in attendance, offering dance lessons to all interested flappers and mobsters before judging the Charleston dance contest. Also featured was a silent auction, various door prizes, and, of course, no Speakeasy Night would be complete without 1920s-style cocktails.
