  1. Point of Honor

    Point of Honor is a historic home located at Lynchburg, Virginia. It is an irregular shaped two-story Federal mansion of stuccoed brick. The facade is composed of a three-bay center section flanked by two octagonal ended projections. Construction was started in 1806, and completed in 1815. The property has commanding views of the city and the James River. Its most famous occupant was Dr. George Cabell, who was a friend of Thomas Jefferson, and physician to Patrick Henry. It was later owned by Judge William Daniel, Jr., father of United States Senator John Warwick Daniel, "the Lame Lion of Lynchburg." During and immediately after the Civil War it was owned and occupied by Colonel Robert L. Owen Sr., who was President of the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad, and whose son Robert Latham Owen Jr. later became a United States Senator. Robert L. Owen Sr. died a financially ruined man in 1873, and his widow and sons were obliged to give up Point of Honor. The house is currently operated as a house museum by the City of Lynchburg. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.
