Red Hill Rediscovered: Making a Memorial: The principal restoration of Patrick Henry's Red Hill tour
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.
