LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA PROPERTY EST. 1893 Paying homage to its origins, shoes are celebrated at the Craddock Terry Hotel and Event Center. The Craddock Terry Shoe Company was, in fact, the first shoe company south of the Mason-Dixon Line and the fifth largest in the world. Built on the edge of the James River in 1901, the factory immediately became the backbone of the city’s commercial success. Today, the Shoe Company has been transformed into a luxury boutique hotel occupying the original building and the historic tobacco warehouse next door.
