It took a little driving to get there, but it was very interesting. His home in later life shows a rather spartan life style in beautiful setting. The museum and film are interesting, too. Worth the trip for those interested in founding fathers.

We enjoyed the film, museum and grounds of the last home of Patrick Henry. The museum staff were very attentive and informative. The grounds surrounding his very modest home were beautiful. This is really remotely located but worth a trip if you are nearby.
