Located in Warsaw, Virginia, Menokin was once the home of Declaration of Independence signer Francis Lightfoot Lee. The Menokin Foundation, however, does not want to restore it to its 1769 self, but replace this missing walls with glass. This will "preserve memory of what was there, while allowing visitors to look inside the walls and learn from Menokin’s pieces."
