The Great House, circa 1738, and the Visitor Center feature items that bring to life the four generations of the Lee family that lived at Stratford, including Richard Henry Lee and Francis Lightfoot Lee, the only two brothers to sign the Declaration of Independence, Revolutionary War hero “Light Horse Harry” Lee, and his son, Civil War General Robert E. Lee, who was born at Stratford in 1807.
Our collections include period furniture made in the Northern Neck. Our Visitor Center includes artifacts from the 17th century Cliffs Plantation that predates Stratford Hall. Also on display are fossils from our Miocene era cliffs.
