History of Fort Lee

Fort Lee is a census-designated place (CDP) and United States Army post in Prince George County, Virginia. It is the headquarters of the following:

  • The United States Army Combined Arms Support Command and Sustainment Center of Excellence
  • The U.S. Army Quartermaster School
  • The U.S. Army Ordnance School
  • The U.S. Army Transportation School
  • The Army Logistics University
  • Defense Contract Management Agency
  • The U.S. Defense Commissary Agency

The fort is also home to the U.S. Army Women's Museum and the U.S. Army Quartermaster Museum.

Named for Robert E. Lee – a US Army Colonel and Confederate States General Chief – it is one of the United States Army installations named for Confederate soldiers that was renamed by the Confederate naming commission. The fort was originally a training camp established during the Civil War west of Richmond. Called "Camp Lee," it wasn't until after World War II that the camp was officially given permanent status. In 1950, it was renamed Fort lee. The fort would be the first army post in the U.S. to feature a full-size statue honoring the service of women in the Army.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Fort Lee has a total area of 8.4 square miles. As of the 2010 census, it has a population of 3,393 people. This is a decrease from the 7,269 people reported in 2000.
