Stratford Hall’s Family First Fridays is a new summer program offered on the first Friday of the month! Join us on Friday, August 5th!

Come discover all that Stratford Hall has to offer! Try our new Audio Tour app for a fun and interactive way to explore the historic area together as a family. 

Enjoy a scavenger hunt activity with your children as you tour the Great House. 

Meet with a member of our collections team and learn about material culture and how we use it to tell stories. Talk with our museum educators about the scientific studies of paleontology and archaeology. 

Make an 18th-century inspired craft to take home after your visit. 

Or explore our 1,800 acre site through miles of nature trails, and hunting for shark teeth along the Potomac River while at Stratford Hall’s public beach.

Special Feature for August 5th Event: 
During your visit, experience a facet of 18th-century life with an iron-working demonstration by the local, veteran-run organization Black Horse Forge from Fredericksburg, VA. Want to try your hand on the forge, bring a $10 (*cash only*) donation for Black Horse Forge and you can make a special iron piece under the supervision of one of their experienced blacksmiths!
