  • Lynchburg VA's Poet Anne Spencers Home is beautiful and features a wonderful garden planted by her and her husband. Very calming I grew up in Lynchburg so this makes me very proud.
  • Beautiful gardens and historic home of Lynchburg's harlem renaissance poet Anne Spencer. A woman ahead of her time! The garden is open during daylight hours, but you have to call ahead to schedule a tour of the house. It's worth it!

  • Great place to visit.
