Description

Point of Honor lies at the intersection of two worlds: the landowners and the enslaved people who, together, created the beautiful historic site we know today. This tour highlights the successes and struggles of the diverse plantation community in the early days of Lynchburg and our nation. Visitors explore the landscape around the historic house, including the Front Lawn, North Lawn, Orchard, and Hearth Kitchen. Please Note: This tour does not go inside the main house.
