Summary
These eleven measured drawings of Patrick Henry's home, Scotchtown, Hanover County, Virginia, were created in 1936 by the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS). The drawings show elevations, plans, and details for the home. A number of architects who went on to some prominence in Virginia worked on documenting this structure, namely W. Duncan Lee, John Albert Heisler III, and Frederick Doveton Nichols

The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) is a collection of documentary measured drawings, photographs, and written historical and architectural information for over 31,000 structures and sites in the United States and its territories. The effort began as a make-work program for unemployed draftsmen, architects, and photographers in 1933. In 1934 the National Park Service entered into an agreement with the Library of Congress and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) as cosponsors of the HABS program. Under the agreement the National Park Service continues to set qualitative standards and direct the preparation of records; the Library preserves the records, makes them available for study, and supplies reproductions to the public upon request; and the AIA provides professional counsel. The program continues today with the Historic American Buildings Survey(HABS)/Historic American Enginering Record (HAER) Summer Program. The complete collection of the HABS surveys is in the collection of the Library of Congress.
