It was a busy morning in the Great House today! A painting of William Pitt hung at Richard Henry Lee's Chantilly (1769-1794) and Stratford (1794-1821). In 1821 it was returned to the Westmoreland County Courthouse. This is a reproduction of that painting and the original is displayed at the Westmoreland County Museum. ...

The Northern Neck is Virginia's hidden gem! Surrounded by two rivers, it is the “birthplace of our nation” with three of the first five American presidents being born here. Not to mention home of the Lees of Virginia who helped form our nation and its Declaration of Independence. The friendly locals are proud of their home and their land that holds generations of Watermen who continue to harvest seafood and family farms that still flourish today.

Just a short ride from Washington D.C. or Richmond, the Northern Neck offers Historic Places, Wineries, Boating, and even Fishing. Below is a short list of the wonderful places to visit.

* Stratford Hall, built in 1738 and home to the Lees of Virginia. Go walking/hiking on Stratford's many trails, tour the Great House, walk the gardens, fish in the Mill Pond, and find fossils on the beach. Stay on-site in one of our adorable guest houses. www.stratfordhall.org or www.innatstratfordhall.org

* Menokin, home of Francis Lightfoot Lee, a Signer of the Declaration of Independence. The house was built in 1769 on land once inhabited by the Rappahannock Tribe. www.menokin.org

* Mount Airy, built in 1764, is a mid-Georgian plantation house. It was constructed for Colonel John Tayloe II, perhaps the richest Virginia planter of his generation. www.mountairy.farm

* George Washington Birthplace National Monument. www.nps.gov/gewa

* Westmoreland Park. www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/westmoreland

* Wineries! Go on a wine tasting at one of the many Wineries in the area. www.chesapeakebaywinetrail.com

* Visit the charming towns of Montross, Colonial Beach, Kilmarnock and others while you're here! www.northernneck.org

And there is so much more!! Call Reservations and book a stay at Stratford Hall and make it a Northern Neck weekend. Call 804-493-1967 for more information and assistance.
