Woman's Red High Heel.

Woman's Red High Heel

The Craddock Terry Hotel was formerly a shoe factory, founded in 1888 by John W. Craddock. At one point it was the fifth largest shoe factory in the world, cranking out 2,500 pairs of shoes a day at this location at its peak.

You can sit inside the big shoe for a photo. Check out the shoe-themed hotel and restaurant while you're there.

Decided to check out Shoemaker's restaurant in downtown Lynchburg, and was pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by a giant red shoe on the side of the Craddock Terry Hotel. There's another shoe on the river side too.
