Lynchburg (Amherst County), VA Professional Review and Guide
"Nestled in the James River valley near the geographic center of Virginia and bordered by the eastern ridge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lynchburg is built upon seven hills that give the city a unique view over the surrounding countryside. To the west is Bedford County, Thomas Jefferson’s country retreat. To the south is Campbell County, one of central Virginia’s most urbanized counties. To the north lie Amherst and Nelson Counties and the famous Virginia ski resort of Wintergreen. And, only 20 miles to the east, is the reconstructed village of Appomattox Court House where, in April, 1865, the Confederacy died and the nation reunited.
Lynchburg is a city of trees, historic landmarks and recreation. It’s a city proud of its culture and deeply committed to the arts. It’s a city where quality of life is important, where life is a little slower, the scenery spectacular and outdoor recreation a way of life.
