DescriptionPatrick Henry embodied the spirit of American courage and patriotism. The orator of liberty, his compelling speeches kindled the fires of the Revolution and fueled the effort to secure freedom. The first governor of Virginia, Henry served five terms. In 1794, he retired to Red Hill, the favorite of Patrick Henry's many homes. The grounds at Red Hill contain Patrick Henry's law office, reconstructed house, kitchen, smokehouse, carriage house, and blacksmith shop, as well as a surviving coachman's cabin. The grounds offer a spectacular view of the Staunton River Valley, walking trails, an African-American Cemetery, and Henry's grave and family cemetery. On the grounds stands the National Osage Orange Tree. The visitor center and museum house the world's largest collection of Patrick Henry artifacts and memorabilia.
