The Craddock Terry Shoe Company was founded in 1888 with facilities throughout Central Virginia and in Ohio and Missouri, and an office in the Empire State building, and grew into the 5th largest shoe company in the world. The main building of the Craddock Terry Hotel was built in 1905 as the Craddock Terry Southland Annex, producing over 2,500 pairs of women’s shoes per day.  The other half of the hotel, the King building is housed in the William King Jr. Tobacco Warehouse. The King Building, built in 1896, was used for storing dried and drying tobacco by the Imperial Tobacco Company. This 6 stories tall building was constructed of hand-made brick fired right here in Virginia and named for the manager of the Imperial Tobacco.


Paying homage to its origins, shoes are celebrated at the Craddock Terry Hotel and Event Center with whimsical touches such as complimentary in-room continental breakfast served in an old-fashioned wooden shoeshine box, shoe-shaped signs to label each guestroom door and shoeshine service available upon request. The decor throughout the hotel is accented with historical artifacts mixed with modern artwork, and a unique collection of shoe memorabilia gives a further ode to the building’s unique heritage. 
The Craddock Terry Hotel and Event Center is located along the James River in downtown Lynchburg, Virginia - close to the Amtrak train station and routes 29 and 460. Lynchburg Regional Airport (LYH) is just six miles from the hotel and Roanoke Regional Airport (ROA) is only 45 miles away.




The Craddock Terry Hotel and Event Center is offering a discounted rate of $159 for VRMA members by calling (434) 455-1500 and requesting the VRMA block. Deadline is September 4th.
