Old Court House

The Old Court House was completed in 1855 and was occupied by the Circuit and Hustings Courts and the Lynchburg city government. During the Civil War, Lynchburg became a center for war munitions, army supplies, troop training and medical facilities because of its location on the railway network and the James River and Kanawha Canal.

Attacked by Federal forces in June 1864, Lynchburg was successfully defended by Gen. Jubal A. Early. After Mayor William D. Branch surrendered the city April 12, 1865, the Old Court House served as the headquarters for the Federal Provost Marshall until the civil government was re-established.

The Old Court House was restored to its antebellum appearance in 1976 and has been adaptively reused as the Lynchburg Museum.
