Lynchburg, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Hermon Methodist Church
Appomattox County, Virginia
— c.1870-1969 —
Like many rural churches in the 20th century, Hermon Methodist closed because of declining membership in 1969. With great pride in their past and generosity of spirit, the Hermon trustees authorized disassembly of the church in 2004 for use in the construction of the Cemetery’s Bicentennial Chapel. Today old Hermon Church lives on in the Old City Cemetery.
