Plan Your Visit


Patrick Henry’s Scotchtown, built in the early half of the 18th century, was home to several notable Virginians, including Patrick Henry, noted orator of the American Revolution. It was here where Henry conceived of his most influential revolutionary ideas. The architecturally unique home and reproduction outbuildings are excellent examples of a small Virginia plantation. Acquired by Preservation Virginia (then known as the APVA) in 1958, after many changes in ownership and building structure, the home was restored to closely resemble the period of the Henry family's residence.
