Step back in time…Take a walking tour on streets lined with Victorian homes in the beautiful Diamond Hill Historic District of Lynchburg, Virginia.
The Diamond Hill Historic District is located on a hill overlooking Downtown Lynchburg, between Church and Grace Streets. Diamond Hill was one of Lynchburg’s most prestigious neighborhoods at the turn of the century. In Diamond Hill you will find a rich selection of architectural styles; Gothic, Colonial Revival, Italianate, Greek Revival, Georgian Revival, Queen Anne, and Stick style homes. Like many historic neighborhoods, Diamond Hill had fallen on tough times by the 1950’s and most of the Victorian homes were converted into apartments. However, due to the foresight and caring of a few individuals, the neighborhood began to turn around in the 1970s. During this revival, Diamond Hill Historical Society was formed to promote and foster the social, cultural, and architectural history of the neighborhood. Diamond Hill became Lynchburg’s first historic district in 1978.
Today, Diamond Hill is one of Lynchburg's most beloved neighborhoods. Located on the edge of Downtown Lynchburg and the James River Arts and Culture District, Diamond Hill is the best of both worlds - a quiet, residential neighborhood with urban amenities. Residents can walk downtown to enjoy the Saturday farmer's market, eat at one of the many local restaurants, or visit Riverfront Park. Diamond Hill is the perfect place for those looking to rent or own a beautiful home in a exciting location.
