Stratford Hall is a historic house museum near Lerty in Westmoreland County, Virginia. It was the plantation house of four generations of the Lee family of Virginia (with descendants later to expand to Maryland and other states). Stratford Hall is the boyhood home of two signers of the Declaration of Independence, Richard Henry Lee (1732–1794), and Francis Lightfoot Lee (1734–1797). Stratford Hall is also the birthplace of Robert Edward Lee (1807–1870), who served as General-in-Chief of the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War (1861–1865). The Stratford Hall estate was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960, under the care of the National Park Service in the U.S. Department of the Interior.

  • An interesting facility rich in history. My husband and I chose the self-guided tour with the audio recording machines. The house was beautiful and the displays were intriguing. The gift shop has lots of interesting and unique gifts as well as corn meal that is made at the working Mill on site. The beach is a nice area and we managed to find a few sharks teeth.
  • Historic house and extensive grounds of the Lee family. There were at least 4 generations who lived here and made a variety of contributions to the early history of the US. It was also the birthplace of Robert E. Lee. The tour of the house is fascinating and there are a lot of out buildings you can explore as well. Beautiful place.
