LYNCHBURG MUSEUM

901 Court Street  |  5PM - 8PM

EXHIBIT: OBJECTS FROM General Electric and B&W's History

During the 1960’s Lynchburg experienced rapid growth. Large numbers of families from the north were relocating to the Hill City to work for General Electric’s Mobile Radio Division and for Babcock and Wilcox Nuclear Power Generating Group. These companies, both of which opened facilities in the 1950’s, hired thousands of citizens and had a drastic effect on  what had previously been a quiet agricultural town. Featured items will include communication equipment made by GE and documents from B&W. Photographs of both plants will be on display.

This event is free and family-friendly
