If you are in the Appomattox Courthouse area, you are close. Patrick died here and his law office is original. The main house is a replica, with family furniture and memorabilia, and is a good example of a period house in this area. Film is well done and see it first. Museum room has additional artifacts including the famous painting... More

Red Hill is a great place to spend a 1/2 day with your family. Arrive early, tour the visitor center and then tour the grounds. Bring a picnic lunch with you and enjoy the peace and quiet as you sit with your family and discuss all you have learned about one GREAT patriotic figure in the history of our country.

Red Hill came highly recommended by folks in the area and it was AWESOME! I called ahead to ask about the amount of time needed for our visit and 1 to 1½ hours was suggested. It was not nearly enough time. There were four of us – two couples and we spent half a day there. We found the volunteers... More

We found out about this historic site from our hotel. The staff was very friendly. There was a short video that was very informative. They offer free golf carts if you don't want to walk the grounds.

We enjoyed our drive here and saw several fat wild turkeys on the way. We also saw more then one old log cabin. The ladies on the staff spoke with us and answered all of our grand children's questions. I wish that we had more time to stay and talk with them, they were so knowledgeable.

There was nothing there! The land was beautiful, but there were no tours. He only spent the last six years of his life there. His grave is there and his house has been restored, one slave cabin and some law offices, but that was about it. The house is very small and contains mostly china from his descendants.
