WYTHEVILLE (WSLS 10) - The town of Wytheville is preparing to add a new music venue to its historic downtown.

On Tuesday, Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore gave the Bolling Wilson Hotel about $20,000 from the state to expand its patio and courtyard area.

The goal is to use this area for concerts and other events to bring people downtown.

The town will also contribute money to the project.

The Bolling Wilson Hotel opened in 2014 after a $4.5 million restoration.
