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

Was in Appomattox for the weekend and decided to drive south to see this since I like seeing all the National Parks/Historic Sites. About a 50 minute ride from Lynchburg on country roads, but not hard to find. Was pleasantly surprised by the site. The lady at the desk was helpful and informative. Small exhibit areas, but interesting. A walk... More

Patrick Henry retired to Red Hill, Virginia and lived there until his death. This monument celebrates the life of one of our first patriots and has the largest collection of Patrick Henry artifacts and collectibles than any other museum. The actual museum is small but the pieces include his violin (fiddle), telescope, desk and the like. The pieces which he... More

This site is easy to miss if you don't pay close attention to signs. This is a very nice historic site but I was somewhat disappointed because based on the website I thought there would be more trails and things to view and some were under construction or not available. The lady in the visitor center was very nice and... More

If you are an American, you need to visit this site. It's the last home of Patrick Henry, and you can really learn about this Founding Father who said, "Give me Liberty, or give me death!" His gravesite is also here, for all of us to pay our respects. We take so much for granted, and need to visit sites... More

The entry into Red Hill is through the visitor's Center/Museum/Gift Shop, and it is staffed by the most delightful and helpful lady. Such a wonderful way to set the right atmosphere. The plantation house is very refreshing - to think that such an intelligent and successful man like Patrick Henry could be so satisfied living in what are actually fairly... More
