Lynchburg was settled in 1757 and named for its founder, John Lynch. When about 17 years old, Lynch started a ferry service across the James River to carry traffic to and from New London, where his parents had settled. Virginia's General Assembly recognized Lynchburg by incorporating the area as a town in 1805; followed by being incorporated as a city in 1852. During the American Civil War, Lynchburg served as a Confederate transportation hub and supply depot. It had 30 hospitals, often placed in churches, hotels, and private homes. In the latter 19th century, Lynchburg embraced manufacturing (sometimes referred to as the "Pittsburgh of the South"). During World War I and II, the city's factories supported the war effort, and the area also supplied troops. Lynchburg has ten recognized historic districts, with 40 buildings individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
