Overview

This charming white clapboard home is part of one of Virginia's oldest plantations. Built in the early 1700s, it was purchased in 1770 by the renowned patriot Patrick Henry, perhaps most well-known for his "Give me liberty, or give me death" speech delivered at St John's Church in Richmond. He lived here with his wife, Sarah, and their six children. The house displays many of Henry's personal effects including a desk and his law library. Scotchtown is just north of Richmond and eleven miles northwest of Ashland, a charming Victorian railroad town.
