From the Jones Library

A Hidden Art Collection
The Jones Memorial Library houses more than genealogical records, old newspapers, and photos. It has quite a large collection of paintings, drawings, and prints donated by local citizens. The work on this page represents a small sample of the library’s treasures.

Entire article available only in printed version. Lynch's Ferry is on sale at the following Lynchburg locations: Bookshop on the Avenue, Givens Books, Lynchburg Visitors Center, Old City Cemetery, Point of Honor, Market at Main, and Lynch's Ferry office at The Design Group, 1318 Church Street, Lynchburg.

Jones Memorial Library is one of the largest libraries in the Commonwealth of Virginia specializing in local history and genealogy and attracting researchers from throughout the United States and abroad. The Library is a privately endowed public research facility supported only by the proceeds of a small endowment and gifts and grants from friends. It is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and making available for public use the historical and genealogical records of a wide area. While the primary focus of the collection is Lynchburg and the Central Virginia area, records are also available for the remainder of the state, as well as surrounding states. Although the materials in the collections may be used by the public without charge, some additional services may incur small fees to offset costs. For more information call 434 846–0501 or visit
