Lynchburg Photos

Welcome! the Lynchburg Museum System’s collection of historic photos of Lynchburg and Central Virginia. We operate the Lynchburg Museum at the Old Court House  and the historic house Point of Honor. There are approximately 10,000 photographs in the collection and are continually adding new ones; please come back often to see unique photographs of Lynchburg!

All images in this collection may be used for educational or scholarly purposes and are provided free of charge at a low resolution for this use. We do ask that the credit line: Courtesy of the Lynchburg Museum System be used with each image.

If you would like a higher resolution of a particular image or wish to publish an image in any form, an access/handling fee will be charged. Please contact the Museum at (434) 455-6226 or at for assistance.
