Take a step back in time by planning an upcoming visit to Stratford Hall, which preserves the legacy of Virginia’s Lee family.

Set among 1,900 acres along the Potomac River, Stratford Hall offers guided tours of its original eighteenth-century Great House. Make a day trip out of your visit by hiking the property’s nature trails, walking through the restored gardens, or visiting its museum exhibits. View the cliffs from an overlook high above the Potomac.

“Today guests visiting the 1900-acre property can enjoy overnight lodging, guided and self-guided audio tours of Stratford Hall’s historic buildings and garden, recreational activities and special events,” staff members say.

Upcoming events planned in May and beyond include:

  • Beer & Blacksmithing — May 16
  • Grandparent & Grandchild Summer Camp — June and July
  • Wine & Oyster Festival — September 19-20
