A National Historic Landmark, Stratford Hall is home to the Lees of Virginia and is located in the Northern Neck of Virginia. Nestled along the Potomac River, Stratford Hall’s nearly 2,000 acres come to life through the presentation and preservation of the 18th-century Great House, vibrant gardens, natural trails revealing breathtaking river views, and the stories of all who lived here.
A HEAV-Sponsored Event. Calling all homeschoolers!
Join us Thursday, September 8th for our Hands-On History: Homeschool Day in partnership the Home Educators Association of Virginia. There will be several fun and educational opportunities available for students and adults to enjoy throughout the day.

Experience the music of the African Diaspora through drumming demonstrations by Slam Stewart. Talk to our knowledgeable museum educators about Paleontology, Archaeology, and Historic Preservation at Stratford Hall.
