Two Projects Making Progress Near 2nd & Thompson

As it is, there are two projects nearby that are at least worth mentioning. First, let's turn our eye to 1317 N. 2nd St., where developers have replaced an old home with a new home.

After a lengthy delay, Liberty Square finally got moving in December, but progress has been slow.
