Stratford Hall is one of the grandest plantation houses of Colonial Virginia. How many historic sites can claim to be the boyhood home of two signers of the Declaration of Independence and the birthplace of Robert E. Lee? Located in rural Westmoreland County, overlooking the Potomac River, in the Northern Neck of Virginia, the Georgian-style Great House was constructed in... More

This is a historical gem. The staff was very informative to tell the history from before the revolutionary war. Allow yourself enough time to tour the grounds and gristmill. The gift shop offers corn meal and grits that is made on the property. Well worth the trip.

You should take a good amount of time to visit this wonderful home. There is so much to see. The tour guides and great. It overlooks the Potomac River, but it is seen in the distance from the front door. There are the stables, kitchen, slaves quarters, graveyard, etc. to visit. It is worth the price. Check their web site... More

I am a Lee family member so visit was just what I wanted and more. There are many other areas to visit on the grounds that are as equally important as the "big house."

We came expecting to hear mostly about Robert E Lee being born here but found it fascinating to learn more about the entire Lee family going back several generations before Robert. The tour of the house helped us learn about the family, tobacco plantations, and the role of slaves. The only disappointment was that several of the rooms are torn... More

Spent a Saturday afternoon visiting this historical gem. The great house tour was well worth it - and our guide was very knowledgeable and funny. Although several upstairs rooms were in process of being renovated, it was still a great tour. After the house tour, we spent a relaxing afternoon walking around the grounds, seeing the gardens, barns, stables, slave... More

Loved seeing the Great House, other buildings and the grist mill. The structure inside is awesome. They are in the midst of renovations to make different rooms in different time periods. Liked what was there to see. Wish the furnishings had been original but they were sold in Auction many years before. Still all in all great tour and well... More

Due to an 1 1/2 hour detour on our way to VA, we did not make it in time for the last house tour of Stratford Hall. However, we did pay the fee to tour the grounds. The museum area was nice and informative. The grounds were clean and well kept. The house was beautiful. The gift shop is large... More

I have been coming to Westmoreland State Park for quit sometime, decided to stop by this place and see what it was all about. We did not do the tours but we drove the whole lot and checked out their beach (for shark teeth). One of the most up kept places I have seen in a while. Perfect place for... More
