My name is Cody Youngblood. I am an architectural historian and the Director of Historic Preservation & Collections at Red Hill. I hold a B.A. in Historic Preservation and Museum Studies from the University of Mary Washington and an M.A. in the Conservation of Historic Buildings from the University of York. I have formerly served as the Museum Director of George C. Marshall’s Dodona Manor where I researched and implemented the refurnishing of the house museum to accurately represent General Marshall’s residency. I have also contributed to the reinterpretation of historic interiors at Oatlands Historic House & Gardens in Leesburg, Virginia and the Rising Sun Tavern in Fredericksburg, Virginia. At Red Hill, I supervise the largest collection of Patrick Henry artifacts in the world and oversee the preservation of the site’s historic built environment.
Outside of the office, I enjoy traveling, cooking, reading (usually about George C. Marshall or Patrick Henry), and listening to bluegrass music.
