Statement of Significance (as of designation - October 7, 1960):
Built in the late 1730s, this is a notable example of early Georgian architecture. H-shaped in plan, Stratford Hall was the family seat of the Lee family, which included two signers of the Declaration of Independence, Richard Henry (1733-1794 )and Francis Lightfoot Lee (1734-1797), and Robert E. Lee, who was born here.

Stratford Hall received a matching grant of $300,000 from the federal Save America's Treasures program in 2003. This grant is being used to support the installation of a new climate control system to protect the interior of the 18th century house and its collections.
