  • Národní památník Red Hill Patricka Henryho poblíž města ve Virginii, je ustanoven na počest Patricka Henryho, zaníceného zákonodárce a řečníka americké revoluce. Henry koupil tabákovou plantáž Red Hill při svém odchodu do důchodu v roce 1794 a žil tam až do své smrti v roce 1799. Kromě hlavní budovy využíval také jednu z vedlejších budov, a to jako svou advokátní kancelář. Pozemek a budovy vlastní Patrick Henry Memorial Foundation, která v padesátých a šedesátých letech 20. století obnovila Henryho advokátní kancelář a jeho hrob. Zrekonstruovala také hlavní budovu a několik vedlejších. Bylo postaveno nové muzeum věnované Henryho životu a zobrazujíci život na Red Hill. Plantáž Red Hill byla zapsána do Národního registru historických míst 14. února 1978. Národní památník byl schválen Kongresem Spojených států 13. května 1986. Red HiIl patří do vlastnictví nadace Patrick Henry Memorial Foundation a zároveň je přidruženou oblastí National Park Service. Na pozemku Red Hill roste prominentní maklura oranžová (Maclura pomifera), který je americkým národním šampionem mezi stromy a patří do Americké lesnické síně slávy. Rozpětí koruny stromu je úžasných 26 metrů a strom je vysoký 18 metrů. (cs)

Henry bought Red Hill Plantation at his retirement in 1794 and occupied it until 1799, the year of his death. In addition to the main house, Henry used another building as his law office. There were also dependencies and slave quarters on the working 2,930-acre tobacco plantation. The plantation was located on the Staunton River for transportation. Congress authorized the establishment of "Patrick Henry National Monument" on August 15, 1935 (49 Stat. 652) pending the acquisition of the property by the Secretary of the Interior. The purchase never occurred, and the enabling legislation was repealed on December 21, 1944 (58 Stat. 852). The site was taken over by the Patrick Henry Memorial Foundation, established in 1944, which in the 1950s and 1960s restored Henry's law office and preserved his grave onsite. It also reconstructed his last home and several dependencies. A new museum was built to provide for interpretation of his life and place. Red Hill Plantation was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 14, 1978. The national memorial was authorized by the United States Congress on May 13, 1986. Owned by the Patrick Henry Memorial Foundation, Red Hill is operated as a house museum and is an affiliated area of the National Park Service, meaning that the Foundation can request certain assistance from the NPS in preserving and interpreting the site. Planning in the 2000s for the site includes a master plan to guide improvements. The first project, supported by 2006 grant money, will be improvements and additions of walking trails to help visitors understand transportation and plantation agriculture. It will relate the site to 18th century bateaux trade and transportation along the river, its ferry site, and the later addition of a 19th-century "former railroad whistle stop". It will restore plantation roads to the plantation distillery, laundry and graveyard of enslaved African Americans. (en)
