Stratford Hall announces major capital campaign, vision for new visitor facilities


On Wednesday, the Robert E. Lee Memorial Association Inc. announced the public phase of a $17 million “comprehensive campaign” that will further restore Stratford Hall’s Great House and gardens, expand its Visitor Center, create digital tours, improve roads and trails, and bolster the endowment of the pre-Revolutionary historic site on Virginia’s Northern Neck.

In the video, Curtis Glover, a Lee family descendant who is president of the association’s national board, and Dr. Paul C. Reber, Stratford Hall’s executive director, brief reporters and community leaders on the far-reaching  initiative.
