Old courthouse clock to chime again

Lynchburg leaders announced they’ve raised enough money to restore the clock and bell at the city’s old courthouse, which is now a museum.

As the VLW Blog previously noted, the museum that now occupies the old courthouse building was trying to raise $20,000 to bring the 150-year-old piece of history back to life.

In a mere four months, the museum reached its goal. According to The News & Advance, 160 contributions were made to the clock-and-bell campaign. Individual donations ranged from as much as $1,000 to as little as 30 cents.
