The Silver Cos. have unveiled their latest idea for the Fredericksburg Hardware property: 19 high-end townhomes, and possibly a four-story mixed-use commercial building. Read Cathy Jett’s report here, and read Bill Freehling’s report on how that part of the housing market has performed lately here.

Census takers will start visiting households May 1, so that number is likely to rise.
