Menokin before and after

Rappahannock Community College’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL) will offer several classes this summer with some held in person and others on Zoom.

Alice French, Menokin’s education coordinator will guide participants through the Menokin landscape. Menokin is designated as one of the country’s “best documented 18th century houses,” and was home to Declaration of Independence signer Francis Lightfoot Lee.

Hear the stories of the house, the people, the landscape, and learn about ongoing preservation projects. Discover the pristine landscape encompassing 500 acres in Richmond County.
