While in the area

There is so much to see while visiting Patrick Henry College!  Many families schedule extra time before or after their visit to explore the historical and cultural sights of the beautiful state of Virginia.

About an hour’s drive from Purcellville there are many historic landmarks to enjoy.  You may visit our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., or the Mount Vernon Estate, Museum & Gardens of George and Martha Washington.  You may choose to visit one of the many civil war sites nearby, including the little town of Harper’s Ferry, or experience the place where our nation was redefined, Gettysburg.

If you are able to schedule a more extended visit, don’t miss the beautiful and historic landmarks of Colonial Williamsburg, Thomas Jefferson’s Plantation at Monticello, or the home of James Madison, our fourth President, at Montpelier.

Perhaps you would enjoy the opportunity to experience the beauty of nature that begins just down the street on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail or W&OD, 45 miles of bike and walking trails that extend from Purcellville to D.C.  There are a number of scenic byways running through Virginia, including Skyline Drive, which takes you through the Shenandoah National Park, offering spectacular vistas, cascading waterfalls and quiet wooded hollows.
