4.6/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web
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 that 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 families residence. Scotchtown is located in Hanover Country at 16120 Chiswell Lane, Beaverdam, VA. Visitors can enjoy guided tours during the months of March through December on Saturdays from 10-5 and Sundays from 12-5. General Admission is $8. For more information call 804-227-3500 or visit
