Millionaires Row

First, see the following article from the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post:

One additional note:  I believe these statistics are only from inside the actual city limits.  (If they were expanded to include the surrounding county areas as well, Kerr and Gillespie Counties in Texas could probably top the national list!)

Next, see this article on the same subject, which was published in the San Antonio Express-News:

Now see this editorial, which was published in the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post:

Finally, read this Letter To The Editor, also published in the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post:

The worst sort of Millionaire's row is Virginia Water, near Windsor, because hardly any of the millionaire's mansions that have been built there are actually lived in. Speculative "investment" has created a sort of upmarket ghost town populated by security guards. Fredericksburg may fare better than that but there is considerable danger in being touted as the in place for Millionaires to buy or build houses, because if these are not lived in the economic spin off of having millionaires is nil.

What's wanted is a place where millionaires are welcome to live, but are not allowed to displace the existing community. The Channel Islands probably represent the best example of how this is actually achieved.
