Patrick Henry was a major landowner and of all the property he acquired, he chose Red Hill near Brookneal, Virginia as his final home. The verdant acreage in rural southern Virginia hasn’t changed all that much since Patrick Henry’s time and that’s part of its appeal.
Red Hill is about 38-miles south of Lynchburg, VA, two-hours southwest of Richmond, and a little over 2-hours north of Raleigh, North Carolina. It’s open Monday – Saturday 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm with winter hours November 1st through March 31st.
Admission is reasonably priced with the most expensive ticket being $8 for adults. Lower rates apply for seniors, students, military, and AAA. Groups are welcome but in order to procure a group rate, call ahead.
In addition to Red Hill, there are several other points of interest in the area to consider when planning an itinerary such as the Southern Virginia Wine Trail, Appomattox, and the Tobacco Heritage Trail. There’s also an array of choices of accommodations in nearby Lynchburg, South Boston, and Appomattox listed on the Red Hill website and a brand new B&B, The Pruitt House, in Brookneal.
