Facility:Sandusky Historic Site & Civil War Museum
Description:“Sandusky” is one of the finest examples of formal Federal style architecture in Virginia’s Piedmont region. Built in 1808 by Richmond merchant Charles Johnston. Thomas Jefferson was an occassional guest at Sandusky. Charles was uncle to noted Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston. The home was used as Union headquarters by General David Hunter during the June 18-19, 1864 Battle of Lynchburg. The yard and barn was used as a field hospital. Sandusky had been a private residence since 1808. In 2000 it was purchased by the Historic Sandusky Foundation for the purpose of developing it into an historic site interpreting Lynchburg’s role in the Civil War. The house is open to tour groups and individuals by appointment. Please call ahead.
