We decided to take a day trip to Red Hill, primarily to learn more about Patrick Henry and his family. And learn we did! The Visitors' Center provided the perfect presentation of Henry's life, his family and the times in which they lived. The staff was knowledgeable, kind and very "visitor-oriented." The site is beautiful...like stepping back 200 + years.... More

Any and everything you ever wanted to know about Patrick Henry, one of the fathers (lesser known) of confederation. The staff was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

This is definitely way out in the boonies! (Located about 35 minutes from Appomattox National Park.) However, it is worth a visit. There is a fee ($6 per person, $5 for seniors) Start at the Visitor Center where you will be given an overview of Patrick Henry's life, watch a short film, there is a small museum area featuring furniture...

This place was difficult to find, as we took many back roads to get there from Appomattox. It is Patrick Henry's last home and burial site. The original home burnt in the 1930s and a benefactor had it rebuilt as it had been when Henry resided there. The building housing his law office is original, as are many of the... More

Very interesting and informative. The movie added more detail about Patrick Henry that I had not known. The self guided tour can be completed at your own pace. Highly recommend a visit.

We travelled here from Appomattox; what a hike! It takes about 45 - 60 minutes, due to many country roads; you definitely cannot speed. Thankfully--and I do mean this--signage is very good, from the road leading from Appomattox Court House to Dairy Queen and then onward; if these signs weren't there you'd definitely get lost if you don't know the...

In mid April 2015 I visited the Patrick Henry National Memorial and was amazed at the beauty of the facility. The site had everything a student of American history could ask for. I was surprised to learn of his undying love for all children, not just his own. He sponsored children's homes at or near this estate.

A very special plantation owned by Patrick Henry. The home burned down but the smaller version is rebuilt along with other cabins and building such as his law office, and grave. The visitors center has a nice video to educate you on the history of Patrick Henry and the grounds a beautifully manicured. Next to the house is a 330... More
