Through the vision and generosity of the late A. Boyd Claytor III, the 18th century farm and plantation house were given to Lynchburg College to serve as an education and research center for environmental study and to preserve the land for future generations.
Located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Claytor Center encompasses freshwater streams, woodlands, wetlands, grasslands, rare plants, wildlife, and a portion of the Big Otter River.
A hiking trail system, small-group campground, and amphitheatre are other features of the property. The Virginia Claytor Memorial Gardens, created in memory of the late Mrs. Claytor, form a series of formal flower, herb, and shrub plantings.
In 2016, LC alumnus Bob Kibler donated 21 acres of land to expand the Claytor Center.
