Once the home of Declaration of Independence signer Francis Lightfoot Lee, now the evocative crumbling ruins of an 18th-century mansion surrounded by waterfront land in Virginia's Northern Neck, Menokin aspires to a future like no other among American Revolutionary sites and conservation efforts.

Through the creative genius of world-renowned architects and other professionals,the new vision for Menokin will take as its centerpiece a high-tech, innovative restoration of the original Neo-Palladian house — featuring a pioneering blend of 21st-century techniques and resources and 18th-century materials. Additionally, through landscape rehabilitation and interpretation, a conservation center, educational activities, outdoor recreation, exhibitions, and special events, Menokin will become a unique cultural hub that nourishes the intellect, inspires patriotism, cultivates love of nature, and enriches the soul.
