2. National Register of Historic Places Nomination Form. “The John Marshall Warwick House was built in 1826 by prominent Lynchburg tobacconist and city mayor, John Marshall Warwick. It is sited at the north corner of Court and Eighth Streets and was one of the first houses to be built on the crest of Lynchburg Hill, later to be called Court House Hill, overlooking the James River. The design exhibits the transition from the Federal to the Greek Revival styles that was occurring during the time and is distinctive for the decorative panels between the first and second floors. This detail lends a refinement unusual for this period in Lynchburg. The Warwick House has a high degree of physical integrity
“The house is also locally known as the childhood home of John Warwick Daniel, Warwickís distinguished and greatly-admired grandson. Daniel was born in Lynchburg on September 5, 1842. His life was inexorably connected to his grandfather and to this house. The mother of John Warwick Daniel, Sarah Anne Warwick Daniel, daughter of John Marshall Warwick, died at the early age of 24 when her son was only a child. Following her death, young Daniel and his sister Sarah were parented by their grandparents in the Warwick House. The childrenís father, Judge William Daniel, Jr. was away from home for extended periods of time so the upbringing of the two children was left primarily to the grandparents. John Warwick Daniel credited his grandfather with having been the strongest influence upon his life. Daniel went on to achieve fame as a lawyer, politician and orator.” (Submitted on August 27, 2011.)
