Bridging Art, History, Culture, and
Environmental Education

Beginning June 6, 2014, the Lynchburg Museum at the Old Court House will join with other partner groups throughout the region to take visitors on an 18-month journey along the James River.

Learn about the James River from many different perspectives - see it as a geologist and discover the different soils and rocks of the river from headwaters to fall line; as a scientist studying plants, animals, and flood patterns; as a recreational resource by experiencing fishing, boating, swimming or walking along the shore, as a historian studying the river through time from the settlements of the first peoples to Jamestown, the impact of expanding English settlements, the Civil War, and industrialization; and as an artist, studying the James through theater, music, painting, and words.
