The Virginia Department of Historic Resources hosted a public hearing last week to garner feedback on a potential expansion of Lynchburg's Lower Basin Historic District. Running along the bank of the James River in downtown Lynchburg, the Lower Basin Historic District first was recognized as a Virginia landmark in 1986, and was listed in the National Registry of Historic Places in 1987. The current Lower Basin Historic District in downtown is bordered generally by Commerce Street, 7th Street, Blackwater Creek, the James River and Washington Street.
