The Lynchburg Historical Foundation, Inc. was established on November 13, 1972, by the consolidation of the Lynchburg Historical Society (1934) and the Historic Lynchburg Foundation (1967), since both organizations had similar objectives.

The purposes for which the corporation was formed are:

  • To promote an understanding of history, architecture and culture through educational programs, exhibits, publications of historical materials and otherwise;
  • To undertake special projects which may include acquisition, restoration and preservation of sites, buildings, structures, documents and objects that are located in, related to, connected with or illustrative of the history and culture of Lynchburg, Virginia, and the surrounding area;
  • To encourage other organizations, corporations, and individuals to do likewise; to encourage, promote and develop partnerships through the Lynchburg Historical Foundation to benefit our community;
  • To take or receive gifts, devises, bequests of money or other property, real or personal, for any such purpose or purposes; and to have and exercise all powers incidental to or necessary and convenient to effect any or all of the purposes for which the Foundation is formed.

  1. To whom it may concern,
    My name is Robyn Broadwater and I was going through some old files and came across old postcards of Lynchbugh Va over 100 years ago. Was wondering if you would be interested in them ?

  2. I’m wondering if you all could help me. I’m looking for information on square dancing that used to occur at river ridge mall years ago. My grandparents participated in it way before I was born and I was hoping to find any kind of pictures or video of the events to see if I could see my grandparents and my father could see his parents. If you know of anything related to this any help would be appreciated. Thank you!


  3. Hello, Robyn. Sorry I have not answered your post before now…I just found it… We would absolutely love to receive the post cards if you still have them! Our address is: LHF, PO Box 248, Lynchburg, VA 24505.

    Thank you for thinking of us!

    Best Regards,
    Lynchburg Historical Foundation

  4. Hello, Megan. Good question! I had always thought that the Lynch Farm House (1787) located at 619 First Street was the oldest house…but in our brochure, Guide to the Historic Districts of Lynchburg, VA, it notes that it is actually the second oldest house…unfortunately, it does not list the oldest house…it’s possible that it is not located in a Historic District. The Miller-Claytor House (1791) located at 2200 Miller Claytor Lane is Lynchburg’s sole remaining 18th century town house. You may want to check with the Jones Memorial Library, which is the archive for Central Virginia, to see if they can find the answer for you. They are located at 2311 Memorial Avenue in Lynchburg. Phone (434) 846-0501 Email: Good Luck!

  5. Hello, James. I’m sorry, but I do not know anything about square dancing at the River Ridge Mall.

  6. Our house is just outside of the historic district, yet it’s from the 1880’s. What is the process of the merit award or to see about the requirements of a merit award?

  7. Hello, Meredith. Thank you for contacting us! We have a new Executive Director, Hank Mullins, who just started in January. He is still in the process of learning all that we do. We will need to do a little bit of research and get back to you. Thank you in advance for your patience.

  8. I want to get my wife some sexy stockings and I am guessing fishnet stockings. Are these ok for general work wear or should they be worn solely in the bedroom?

  9. I see you don’t monetize your blog, don’t waste your traffic,

  10. Hey, nice post you go there. I know you get some traffic from social media sites and from Google, but it doesn’t give you much cash in your pocket, does it? I was in the same shoes before. That’s why I’m helping my fellow blogger to make some more money. I had made a free ebook that tells you everything you need to know to acquire traffic from sources you’ve never heard before and make more or less $500 all morning from CPA.

  11. Others is capable of doing a hardon but cannot maintain it during sexual intercourse. Core maca through the supplier energetix is surely an herb that tests quite nicely for several males.

  16. oui et pas vraiment. Affirmatif car il se peut qu’on détermine de nouvelles sources qui certainement se référent les memes significations. Non en effet il ne suffit pas d’imiter ce que tout le monde être autorisé à trouver avec certains site web tiers puis le transcrire tant simplement…

  17. I know of the fact that today, more and more people are attracted to surveillance cameras and the field of pictures. However, to be a photographer, you must first invest so much period deciding which model of photographic camera to buy and moving from store to store just so you may buy the most affordable camera of the brand you have decided to decide on. But it does not end just there. You also have to think about whether you should obtain a digital dslr camera extended warranty. Thanks for the good suggestions I accumulated from your blog site.
