This site is definitely off the beaten path, but don't let that prevent you from coming. The entire visit is self-guided, but a guide will be in the museum to show you the video and the small gallery in the visitor's center. Our guide was well-informed and enjoyable. She clearly showed a love for Patrick Henry and Red Hill. After... More

Set your GPS and head over the Red Hill! We stayed in Gretna, VA and made the trek over. What a beautiful place - well worth the low admission. There was hardly anyone there the day we visited. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves! The movie and museum were interesting and the docent was welcoming and... More

My wife and I visited Red Hill this weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the exhibit. Start with the movie and museum to give you the background on the "least known founding father" before heading out on your self-guided tour of the buildings and grounds. The description in the guide-paper of the house left us a little confused as it... More

Don't give up looking for Red Hill! It certainly is off the beaten path. The entire visit is self-guided through the small house and various out-buildings. There is also a video which provides the majority of the information, and a small museum. I would have liked a little more information or write-ups for the buildings. You can also take a... More

The grounds are beautiful. The video - while it does help give background on Henry's life - is very saccharin. Very. The buildings are recreations - but very nicely done. And the grave sites are serene and memorable. Worth even a decent distance drive to see if you enjoy US/Revolutionary history.

We enjoyed the ride in the country and discovered a gem. We visited on the 4th of July in which there were the regular sightseeing opportunities of the place along with venders, live music and fireworks. They did a reenactment of Patrick Henry's speech. There is a nice visitor's center and small museum. Will return for other special events. It... More

My husband and I took a trip to see Patrick's Henry's final home. I'm a big fan, but was disappointed. There wasn't much here. We did come when the place wasn't open, so maybe there's more to it.
