The Lyceum

Greek Revival Style

The entire second floor of The Lyceum is a large hall (28' x 58') decorated in the Greek Revival style of the 1840's---dusty rose colored draperies and valences, tall, narrow mullioned windows, high ceiling, a Greek frieze going around the top of the walls,

The Alexandria Lyceum was founded in 1838 by a group with an interest in improving public educational and cultural opportunities throughout the community. In 1839, the group joined with the Alexandria Library to construct a new home for both organizations, the building known today simply as The Lyceum. This historic site has also served as a Civil War hospital ward, a private residence, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Nation’s first Bicentennial Visitor’s Center. Today, as the city’s history museum, the site offers exhibitions, public programs, a museum store, and facility rentals.

Reviews

Stefanie was such a huge help! Everything was smooth, she helped us find ways to cut costs and advocated for us with our venue.

It was a pleasure to work with Alberto Trevizo and Catering by Seasons. Alberto was knowledgeable and pleasant to work with, and was very accommodating when we had to postpone our wedding one year.

Alberto is the best catering manager ever!! Everything about working with Catering by Season, from the planning, communication, to the execution was phenomenal!
