Description:- 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 (17321794), and Francis Lightfoot Lee (17341797). Stratford Hall is also the birthplace of Robert Edward Lee (18071870), who served as General-in-Chief of the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War (18611865). 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.
