Virginia is for Lovers Logo

To Petersburg for LINCOLN!

Created by: Casey

Going to spend a couple days in Petersburg eating where the cast and crew ate and seeing the filming locations. Major scenes were shot on the streets and buildings received faux facades. Those are the types of things you wish would stick around for movie hounds like us. I hope there's something playing at Sycamore Rouge to round out the evening.

Here, in one of the oldest surviving bank buildings in America, you can see its heavy safe which was kept in the cashier's office during banking hours and lowered through the floor to the vault below at night. It features a restored period kitchen and courtyard. The bank survived the Civil War by printing its own money but closed in 1865.
