Tinbridge Hill in Lynchburg, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Chapel and Columbarium
Today the Chapel pays tribute to the many religious leaders buried in the Cemetery since 1806. It also provides a unique setting for funerals, weddings, and other special occasions. The Columbarium in the lower level of the Chapel contains niches and crypts for the final resting place of future generations of Lynchburg’s citizens. The Chapel and Columbarium were completed in 2006 to mark the bicentenary of the Cemetery.
