Lewisburg Historic District


Dating from the 18th Century, this quaint town was the site of a Civil War battle on May 23, 1862, when Union forces attempted to sever railroad communications between Virginia and Tennessee. There is a Confederate cemetery in town, a library that was used as a hospital with Confederate graffiti on the walls, a church with a cannonball hole and a monument to the Confederate dead. The North House Museum also offers Civil War enthusiasts artifacts and documents from that era, including a packsaddle used to break Robert E. Lee’s famous horse, Traveler.
