In a young city like Woodbury, residents well remember the housing boom.

In the early 2000s, as recession hit developers hard and tradesmen began reinventing themselves, owners Jim and Susan Alberts made a bold move: they built a showroom.
Woodbury If everyone has a twin in this world, Margaret Wachholz's has yet to be found; there is no clone of her. Receiving accolades and praises from her volunteer peers, Wachholz was named the Woodbury Area Chamber of Commerce's 2016 Citizen of the Year. Those who know her from her work at Woodbury Senior Living, volunteerism for the Chamber, Woodbury Heritage Society and Woodbury Community Foundation, and more than a half-dozen years at King of Kings Lutheran Church might be surprised to know she lives in fear, which she said she has made her friend.
