Take a “stroll” through Lynchburg’s historic Old City Cemetery and hear the stories of several of the Hill City’s citizens of yesteryear in OCC’s first professionally filmed version of the fall-time favorite Candlelight Tours. From the comfort of your home, learn about life and struggles during the Civil War, the thoughts of patriots in the Revolution, the fight for equality fought by Suffragettes, the details of a suspicious murder trial, and stories of beloved members of the Lynchburg community. Grab your favorite snack and settle in for a hauntingly good evening of local history!
