The Davis Multi-Use Building is the working title for an FSRM LLC building project at 533 William Avenue in Davis, West Virginia. The new building is designed to blend into the main street of this early 1900's town and take advantage of the view Blackwater River and the wooded area beyond the river.
The town of Davis was incorporated in 1889 and became a bustling city in the early 1900's sporting electric street lights and more than 80 businesses. The development of the area began with the arrival of a railroad in 1884 and the boom of the lumber and coal industries. The daily train service linked the area to Cumberland, MD connecting the area to east and north.
Recently the building's large parking lot has been a central hub for festivals in Davis including a spring art festival, fall Leaf Peepers Festival, and Run-For-It 5k walk/10K run Tucker Foundation fundraiser. These festivals/street fairs are important to the area. The festivals have grown steadily over the past decade, and now draw over 5000 visitors several times a year. We plan to continue to be a cultural hub for community activities.
FSRM LLC are locals who saw an opportunity to provide new possibilities for the area. We are looking forward to 533 William Avenue becoming the anchor of the west end of Davis's main street. We anticipate that it will serve as the catalyst for economic opportunity and cultural expansion in our community.
