Lynchburg, Virginia Houses for Sale

Located in the south-central part of the state of Virginia, Lynchburg is an administratively dependent city but is located in the Campbell and Bedford counties. The city sits in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the James River. The city used to be a ferry landing which was settled by the Quakers in 1757. The town’s economy has flourished after the James River and Kanawha Canal started to connect with Richmond just east of the city and after the arrival of the railroad. After the end of the American Civil War, the city has developed a shoe- and iron-making center which gave rise to the city as a market for dark tobacco, used for chewing and cigars, and eventually decreased the use of bright tobacco for cigarettes. Lynchburg’s modern economy now includes the manufacturing of steel products, pharmaceuticals, and textiles.
