6/7/12 * The Hook [ full story ]
Eighteen months ago, Crozet was abuzz at the news that J. Bruce Barnes Lumber in the heart of the village would be redeveloped into a pedestrian mall. Today the town is stunned that the 19-acre property is under foreclosure and will be sold at auction June 27.
"I didn't see this coming," says Crozet real estate agent/blogger Jim Duncan. "It's sad. Barnes Lumber has been a part of the Crozet community for a long time."
Carroll Conley is the owner of J. Bruce Barnes, and he didn't immediately return a phone call.
