Special Exhibit Planned For First Fridays Event

As part of the First Fridays series, The Lynchburg Museum is exhibiting a number of objects from the Point of Honor Collection.   The items belong to Katharine Garland Diggs. Upon her death in 1971, Miss Diggs donated money for the establishment of a public museum in Lynchburg. The money she left was used to begin the restoration of Point of Honor and to establish a trust fund for its future.  She also bequeathed many of her personal and family belongings from the 19th and early 20th centuries. It’s those items that will be on display for the First Friday of March. The collection includes jewelry, family photographs, glassware, a family cookbook, and a portrait; the items will remain on display through the weekend. The collection can be viewed free of charge on Friday, March 7 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
