Great historical home
Jun 2021 • Couples
Very well run historical home. Location is beautiful. Tour is self guided, so you have a chance to take your time. Staff is very friendly and passionate. Off the beaten track and very uncrowded. Henry was a very interesting man and worth learning about.

A Brilliant American Treasure
Oct 2020 • Family
Red Hill is a must visit for anyone who loves American history. It is an extraordinary monument to liberty and freedom.

Patrick Henry did as much as any founding father and a visit to Red Hill will confirm his contribution to the founding of America.

Be sure to watch the 12 minute video.

A highlight for us was the walk past the house to where Mr. Henry would look over the land towards the river - it’s very nice.

It’s also humbling to visit the grave of such a powerful leader for liberty.

The gift shop is nice with a wide selection of reasonably priced items. There is a small admission fee but is quite low.

Go enjoy

Absolutely beautiful, full of history and educational opportunities. Tranquil, peaceful and off the beaten path. Nice visitor's center and informative park attendant. Burial plot of Patrick Henry and family. Stop by and stroll around the grounds for a few hours...you will enjoy.

A gem
Dec 2019 • Solo
If you are interested in the American Revolution and the fathers of confederation this rather out-of-the-way farm/monument is well worth the effort. The setting is exquisite, the buildings well displayed containing so many things of Patrick Henry's. Plus a small museum of his personal items, furniture and various paintings of him.
The staff were so enthusiastic and wanted to share everything tthey knew about this fascinating man.

Lovely place to visit
Oct 2019
I had no idea how accomplished Patrick Henry was until I visited Red Hill, his home for the last five years of his life and his burial place. Unfortunately, there was not a tour available when we visited. It was late in the day on a fall Monday and we were the only visitors there. We were given a very useable map with a description of the various places on the plantation. It took us about 50 minutes to visit most of it but we could have used a bit more time. Afterwards, we saw a very good 15 minute video in the Visitor's Center and visited a small museum.

Great piece of history.
Sep 2019
We spent a few hours viewing the house, grounds, museum and slave graveyard. We learned a lot about Patrick Henry and his family. He lived in this small house compared to the size it became after his death. He lived a simple life after his retirement from politics. Well worth the money to visit.

Self-guided tour a map will be provided. There are several informational plaques referencing the grounds and buildings. The law office plaque has the most information about Patrick Henry himself. Make sure to visit the museum with several personal items owned by or gifted to the Henry family.

Great way to stretch your legs
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is an ideal place to take a stroll through time. Be sure to view the video and visit the museum. You might get an insight about how the park's renovation/restoration was needed and how it came about. Don't rush your visit. Nature lovers will enjoy many of the plants and birds on the grounds. Go with the intent of enjoying nature. You might be lucky to have the entire visit to yourself. Something the Patrick Henry must have enjoyed. Discounts available.. check their website.

Thank you so much for your kind review! Red Hill is what Patrick referred to as the "garden spot of the world" so we are thrilled that you found great pleasure in the beauty that surrounds us here at Red Hill. We are so glad that you enjoyed not only the grounds but the orientation film and the video as they both provide great insight into who Patrick Henry was throughout his life not just one speech. Thank you again!

Learned a lot about Patrick Henry
Jan 2019 • Family
We enjoyed visiting Red Hill while in Brookneal visiting family. We only had a short amount of time and the docent made it worth our while, hitting the highlights for us. We learned a lot.

Great Place to See History -
Oct 2018 • Couples
Patrick Henry was a great founding father. Beautiful place and area. The staff was excellent and very informative. The view were some of the best I have ever seen anyway. Nice and relaxing self guided tour but starts with a presentation in the welcome area. Definitely a place to visit and learn more about Patrick Henry and his family.
