The circa-1910 City Auditorium on Main Street is under contract with Dave Frey, co-founder of the Lockn' music festival, who wants to restore it to a music venue for Lynchburg's growing downtown.

It was designed by architects Aubrey Chesterman and Edward Graham Frye, who together brought several noteworthy buildings to the city — including the 1905 Academy of Music Theatre and the original Jones Memorial Library on Rivermont Avenue.
