The staff is helpful Call before you go as many times the office has been closed. They continue to search & have civil war vets headstones placed to properly honor those that fought.

There are so many old graves here. This place is full of history. I have lived in Lynchburg for years and just visited with friends of mine. We walked through. It was a great surprise..

As a lover of cemeteries, for awhile this one was considered a hidden gem and it always saddened me that not too many people went to visit it. It has recently started offering tours and has a brochure.

This is an oft overlooked stop for history buffs and cemetery wanderers. LOTS of city pioneers, founders and funerary art. Of particular and poignant concern to this Dixie boy are the many graves of our Southern heroes...amply noted and decorated. Good stop that reminds us...More
