The view of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains and place beside the historic James River made Lynchburg a unique place for industrialists and adventurers to call home. These people created a city that, at times throughout its history, ranked as one of the wealthiest communities per capita in the nation, with fortunes built on trade, tobacco, and manufacturing. This affluence fueled construction of extraordinary buildings in a diverse array of architectural styles. Some of the architectural styles to be found on this walking tour include Art Deco, Art Nouveau, modernist and Neoclassical. Hard copy brochures of this tour are available at the Lynchburg Visitor Center at the corner of 12th and Church Streets, Downtown.
