Believed to be the fourth house built in Lynchburg, this historic house is the sole surviving pre-19th century townhouse where Thomas Jefferson allegedly proved to the owner of the house's garden that tomatoes were not poisonous by eating one of the fruit. The home was dismantled in 1936 and rebuilt at its Riverside Park location where the garden was also re-restored.
