  • Red Hill - Patrick Henry National Memorial Easter Egg Hunt
    The Patrick Henry National Memorial invites you and your children to join them on the beautiful grounds of Patrick Henry's Red Hill to participate in the annual Easter egg hunt. This event is for the entire community. Children ages 0-12 years can search for eggs and collect lots of goodies. Bring your camera so you can take pictures. The Easter story will be told every 30 minutes by members of local church members and volunteers. There will be costumed docents outside of the Henry home to provide information about the plantation buildings. This year there are stations for the different age groups to create and make your own Easter Bunny Ears! This event is free of charge and is sponsored by Red Hill and Brookneal Baptist Church. For more information please call us at 434-376-2044.
