Patrick Henry's Scotchtown
In a 45-minute tour guided by our trained interpreters, you’ll learn about the life and legacy of Patrick Henry. Engage with fellow visitors and discuss Henry’s ideals of liberty, human rights and revolution, and the ways those ideas influence us today.
In addition to our regular museum tour, we will begin offering our special “Patrick Henry: Champion of Religious Freedom,” tour Sundays at 2:30 p.m. on October 7. Our interpreters will take guests through Henry’s journey as a defender of religious freedom in colonial America. Tickets can be purchased in advance through Eventbrite:
Walk through our two-room exhibit that showcases Henry’s legacy and then stroll the grounds and outbuildings. Meet our sheep, Lady Flufferface, Winston, Studley and Charles “Charlie” Chiswell.

Pack a lunch and eat under our covered pavilion. We have 12 picnic tables that seat up to 50 people. Recharge your phone while you eat; electrical outlets are available.
