It is great to see good news about Hopewell spreading throughout the greater Richmond region, including this feature today on NBC12.com.
For years, we’ve been enthusiastic boosters of the city and it has been fun to watch new restaurants and businesses open on East Broadway from our downtown office in the Williams Building.
One of Burnett and Williams’ lead attorneys, Jim Williams, has family roots in the tri-cities area and has been a member of the Hopewell Downtown Partnership and the Hopewell-Prince George Chamber of Commerce for a number of years.
Like many of Virginia’s industrial communities, Hopewell has struggled with an identity crisis in recent decades, but its historic charm has held, and interesting new businesses are pulling people in – especially the Gun Cotton Coffee shop which is celebrating its first anniversary this week. Congrats!!
