Developed from 1908 as the centerpiece of a neighborhood known as Randolph-Macon Heights and named after the nearby college (BD63), Woodland Avenue contains some of Lynchburg's best period-revival residential architecture. Most of the houses are variants of Georgian Revival, though there are also several large American foursquares.
