Lynchburg frequently is called the "Hill City" or "City of Seven Hills." There are the original seven that surround downtown: College, Daniel's, Diamond, Garland, Federal, Franklin and White Rock. Others include Cotton, Fort and Tinbridge. Each has its own history.
This selection of more than 60 photos from the archives of The News & Advance looks at some of the neighborhoods, people and slices of life found in Lynchburg's hills.
