This memorial is at Patrick Henry's plantation in Central Virginia. The visitor center is very informative with a short movie describing Patrick Henry's life on this plantation. Then you can walk around and see the humble setting that he and his family lived in. There is also a museum that holds some of his actual artifacts. Worth the visit!

Patrick Henry, his wife and child are actually buried here on the property. You have the opportunity to walk around and check out the grounds and the buildings that were there when Patrick Henry was living there. There is also an orange tree that is there that is about 300 years old. A fun stop.

A gem that is apparently overlooked by too many folks. What a treat to visit on Independence Day. I still can't over the fact that several of our guides were direct descendants of the man himself! Even though my mom walks with a cane, it was very doable. An amazing woman offered to drive us around on a golf cart... More

Was unprepared as to how much I was going to love this place. The docent was a very kind, energetic and informative lady.

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
