America’s Oldest Pawn Shop

L. Oppleman Pawn was founded in Lynchburg, VA by Jacob and Lena Oppleman and named after Lena Oppleman in 1890. Their son, Ike Oppleman, took over operations during the 1920’s.

A young man named Aaron Somers began working at the pawnshop in the 1930’s and fell in love with the business. After Ike’s passing, Aaron acquired L. Oppleman and continued the legacy, choosing to maintain the prestigious name of L. Oppleman as a staple business in Lynchburg, VA.
