By 1944, Patrick Henry’s manicured plantation had become an overgrown jungle of ruined buildings. With the formation of the Patrick Henry Memorial Foundation that year, efforts began to not only rescue, but to reconstruct Henry’s property in its 18th century form. After over a decade of work, construction was completed.

Join Red Hill-Patrick Henry National Memorial Curator Cody Youngblood for an exciting lecture telling the story of Red Hill’s principal restoration. Learn how Stanhope Johnson, one of Virginia’s foremost architects, was chosen to lead the rebuilding, and how funds were raised for construction.
