This article is on point concerning the housing stock, I just bough a 3,000 square foot brick home with five bedrooms three full baths one half and a guest house for 80,000 in Walnut Hill. This city has some amazing deals and the metro Richmond region is growing and I hope that when the Cambria Hotel comes into play our brand in Petersburg will change. The city does still have some issues but it's such a small city one project could change the city for the better. Look at what the boat house did for Hopewell. Hopefully Petersburg will also benefit from the Matoica Site and with the growth Fort Lee will consumers will venture in as well.

Thank you for the article!

As a resident of Petersburg, Walnut Hill neighborhood also, I'd like to thank you for the positive article. I also work in Old Town historic district at Petersburg Provisions, a neighborhood grocery with local items, deli, ice cream and catering. I'm also the Market Manager for the River Street Market which is the city's Farmers Market held every Saturday 8-12 down next to the historic Farmers Market Building in Old Town. Lots to see and do in the 'Burg!
