Main, Court and Church Streets in downtown Lynchburg have so much history. Fortunately, there are periodic plaques or signs that explain the local history, especially the Civil War era. Downtown improvements continue, making this city a nice place to visit, but there are lots of...More

Went here when we went to the Lynchburg museum. Several beautiful monuments here to see, and perhaps the veterans will be gathering to honor the fallen when you are there. Lots of steps if you don't mind the exercise. Beautiful!
