About Old City Cemetery
Old City Cemetery is a unique 27-acre public garden on the edge of downtown Lynchburg. It is the City’s most visited historic site, with over 33,000 visitors each year. They enjoy four museum buildings, fascinating stories from local history, a lotus and goldfish pond, beautiful antique roses and flowering shrubs, and a famous tree swing. Although the Cemetery is still open for burials and memorials, it also offers a busy schedule of school tours, nature walks, workshops, theater performances, and concerts throughout the year. The Cemetery’s Bicentennial Chapel has become a popular wedding venue. Lynchburg’s “gravegarden” is truly unlike any other cemetery!
