Patrick Henry's Red Hill

1250 Red Hill Road, Brookneal, VA 24528 - United States




The beautiful Museum Room houses the world’s largest collection of Patrick Henry artifacts and memorabilia.


Patrick Henry artifacts contained in the Museum Room include letters and other documents, business and personal items, books, musical instruments, and furniture. The centerpiece of the museum is the famous oil painting by Peter Rothermel of "Patrick Henry before the House of Burgesses" in Williamsburg. It depicts the scene when Patrick Henry evoked cries of "Treason!" for his denunciation of the Stamp Act. Recently added to the museum is the restored, preserved and framed Red Hill Plat of 1823.
