My husband and I love visiting older homes to see how the people lived. In this home you can actually walk into the rooms and our tour guide had lots of information to share with us. There is also a cute little gift shop were you pay to get in. It located in a historical residential neighborhood so we took... More

We stayed at the Carriage House Inn, 2 blocks from Point of Honor and they suggested visiting it. Very Interesting!!! One of the many interesting places in Lynchburg. We were visiting our son at Lynchburg College so we didn't get to see many of the places in town.

Don't be fooled by the "Terrible" rating -- we NEVER got in & that's why I decided to add my review, BECAUSE you may go on a busy day, which we must have done, & you'll be disappointed as there was NO PARKING ANYWHERE !!!! We drove around & around for at least a half hour & observed there must... More

We enjoyed the Fall event that was free for the community. We have been to Point of Honor several times, but enjoyed this as it seems to attract more each year. The house tour along with the event on the grounds were very nice. The live music was a great addition. The only negative was that it was a bit... More

They have taken care to faithfully restore this grand old house. Pay particular attention to the wood inlays in the clock in the entry way.

We love to tour old historic homes, and given that this one was once owned by Patrick Henry's physician, made it really special for us since we knew nothing much about Patrick Henry before our trip and a whole lot about him when it was over since we visited Red Hill as well. The guide was great, and the historical... More

This home was restored back to its 1800's roots. It is a nice example of an antebellum mansion. The tour guide was very enthusiastic. However, I don't see what all the fuss is about when there are so many other magnificent historical homes in the area.

The views are amazing as it is perched high on the hill overlooking the river. We were forutnate enough to have the museum director provide... More

A lovely historic home perched high on the hill. Beautifully restored with the simple elegance of the era. The Paris-themed wallpaper in the parlor is delightful. Our tour guide, Bev, was knowledgeable and hospitable, welcoming us to the Cabell home as if it were her own!
