Federal Hill

-A A +A

Centered on Federal Street between 8th and 12th streets, and extending to Harrison and Jackson streets on either side of Federal, this neighborhood was the first large-scale residential development beyond Lynchburg's original town boundaries. Although it contains a panoply of nineteenth-century buildings representing a number of styles, an exceptional collection of Federal houses built during the short, prosperous epoch from c. 1815 to 1819 still defines its architectural character.
