Description

Point of Honor represents the intersection of two worlds: the landowners and the enslaved people who together created the beautiful historic site we know today. This 75-minute tour highlights the successes and struggles of the diverse plantation community in the early days of Lynchburg and our nation.

 

Visitors will explore the carefully restored Federal period main house, the landscape around the house (including the Front Lawn, North Lawn, and Orchard), and the Hearth Kitchen.
