Listed By: Virginia Film Office
Location ID: #009-2698
Point of Honor is a historic home, now a city museum, located in Lynchburg, Virginia. The property has views of the city and the James River. Its builder and designer, Dr. George Cabell, was a friend of Thomas Jefferson, and physician to Patrick Henry. The irregularly shaped two-story Federal mansion is built of stuccoed brick. The facade is composed of a three-bay center section flanked by two octagonal ended projections. Construction was started in 1806, and completed in 1815. It was renovated about two decades later, with wallpaper and stucco added, and perhaps a porch which was removed during the 1977 restoration. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and opened as a public museum in 1978. Click here for additional info.
