Here are some odds and ends from the world of Fredericksburg-area business over the past week:

Pachinko LLC, which is registered to a Black Knight executive, purchased the 2,000-square-foot Princess Anne Street building last month from an affiliate of the late William J.

Silver Cos. CEO Larry Silver will lend the Fredericksburg Area Museum & Cultural Center 10 paintings from his private collection to display throughout December to help commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Fredericksburg. Silver had the paintings done starting in 2006 as part of the Celebrate Virginia Art Project. The collection focuses on the history of Fredericksburg from the Colonial era through the Civil War. Most of the artwork has never been seen publicly before. The paintings are on permanent display at the Silver Cos.' office in Florida and will return there after the exhibit.
Dominion Raceway has hired firms to plan its facility near the Thornburg exit off Interstate 95. Bowman Consulting will oversee engineering work. Dominion Engineering Associates will perform soil testing, borings and evaluation. Dunning & Associates of Centreville created the master plan and will be the designer and architect.

Purvis Ford raised $2,240 for Families of the Wounded Fund during a Nov. 9 event held at the dealership on U.S. 1 near the Fredericksburg-Spotsylvania County line. Purvis gave $20 to the fund for every test drive that day, and Ford Motor matched it. The organization provides financial support to the family and caregivers of wounded military members.
