About Red Hill

Research

Extensive research has been completed about enslaved and free life at Red Hill from the 1790s -early 1900s. This summer, Red Hill hosted three interns specifically for this project. These
students traveled to several archival sites to find wills, inventories, and other sources to help uncover more about this ongoing story. Archaeology will continue this December where 25 acres along the Quarter Place Trail will be mapped to identify other areas of interest. Earlier in the year, Longwood University’s archaeology team found at least 454 artifacts during a field school
project.

Education

Education has always been and will always be at the heart of our mission. Red Hill has worked
this year to develop virtual tours for vulnerable populations who cannot safely travel to discover
the grounds at Red Hill. Tools for teachers have been created to launch on our website that are
easily used for students who are in the classroom, and those who attend school virtually.

Community

At the outbreak of COVID-19, Red Hill created, compiled, and sent 1,500 Patrick Henry activity
books to schools who were unable to visit for their Living History field trips. We began hosting American Red Cross Blood Drives in April in honor of two local children battling leukemia to help address the blood shortage. In June we had two drive-in Movie Nights to give families in our community a chance to spend time together in a safe environment outside of the home.

Preservation

Preserving Patrick Henry and Red Hill artifacts for future generations is critical. Over the past year, staff has cleaned and rehoused artifacts to further this goal. Archaeological findings have been catalogued and documented as well. Primary sources have been transcribed to be shared with the public on our primary website.

Family, like branches of a tree, grow in different directions, but our roots keep us all
together.

We are thankful for YOU! This year has been a very hard year for everyone, but through it all you have inspired us to not give up. You have helped us to remain deeply rooted and focused on our mission of education and preservation. Like the Osage Orange tree is anchored by an extensive root system, we feel like you are our root system, and we are anchored by you.
Now, more than ever, we need your financial support. We believe that with YOU as our root system, we will not only survive – we will thrive!

Education

Education has always been and will always be at the heart of our mission. Red Hill has worked this year to develop virtual tours for vulnerable populations who cannot safely travel to discover the grounds at Red Hill. Tools for teachers have been created to launch on our website that are

Online Resources

Virtual classes and tours will be created to reach more people who cannot physically come to Red Hill.

Broadening Interpretation

Through research and archaeology along the Quarter Place Trail, we can create a more inclusive narrative about everyone who was part of the Red Hill story.

Preservation

Red Hill will continue to collect artifacts and grow the story of Patrick Henry and the complete story of Red Hill. We will be good stewards of the land and preserve the natural environment of the wildlife which lives here. By creating trails for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers, people can observe and enjoy this place that Henry referred to as “one of the garden spots of the world.”

Events

Community is important to us here at Red Hill. Your generosity will be helping us plan future engagement and fun for the entire family as we continue to bring families and friends together – even with COVID.
