Rural Thursday Blog Hop # 25




On the 4th of July we drove over to Lynchburg and toured Point of Honor . Dr. George Cabell started construction in 1806 and finished in 1815. Dr. Cabell was the physician of Patrick Henry and neighbor/friend to Thomas Jefferson. I'm always amazed at how many important Amercians lived in this area and were so intertwined!

Hookin' up with Rural Thursday :)

  4. I find it interesting that it took 10 years to complete this beautiful home. Another thing we take for granted, I guess.

    Thank you for sharing at Rural Thursdays, Tanya. ox

  12. That is one stunning building there. I really like the brickwork, not as good as the history that goes with the property though
