About Garland Hill
Garland Hill is one of the seven original hills in Lynchburg. The small neighborhood is on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s also a Virginia Historic Landmark and a Lynchburg Historic District.
As you can see, this neighborhood has a great deal of history.
As you walk through the neighborhood, you’ll see some of the oldest homes in Lynchburg. These homes used to sit on lots that were a full block in size. Over the years, the owners sold off portions of their lots, so now, you’ll see a mixture of older and newer homes. It’s really neat to see since the architecture between the homes is so different. You can easily pick out which ones were the original homes and which have been added. One thing is the same, though. All the homes are beautiful.
The homes sure are beautiful in Garland Hill, just like the vehicles are beautiful at Berglund Automotive in Roanoke, Virginia. They aren’t just gorgeous, either. They’re a blast to drive. You don’t have to take our word for it. Stop by and see our cars, trucks, and SUVs in person today. Pick one out and take it for a spin. Then, you can take it home today.
