The University of Lynchburg’s main campus offers some of the region’s premier facilities for large or small events.
The Claytor Nature Center is open to the general public during normal operating hours. The center, which is located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has freshwater streams, woodlands, wetlands, grasslands, rare plants, wildlife, and a part of the Big Otter River. It is about a 45-minute drive from the University of Lynchburg’s main campus.
The property also includes a hiking trail system, a small-group tent campground, and an amphitheater. There is also the Virginia Claytor Memorial Gardens, which is a series of formal flower, herb, and shrub plantings in memory of the late Mrs. Claytor.
Located in the heart of Lynchburg, Historic Sandusky, in partnership with the University of Lynchburg, is dedicated to providing educational opportunities and career development for students and the public by preserving and interpreting the history of slavery, the Civil War, and 19th century American life. This registered Virginia Historic Landmark is able to accommodate small classes, lectures, receptions, and meetings. Immerse your next event in history in the middle of the Hill City.
