Long Description:
Richmond is under sea level. There are areas in Richmond as low as 10 or more meters under sea level. The GPS in my car and my Garmin Colorado 300 both show a minus sign in many parts of Richmond.
There are survey monuments like this one every mile or 1600 meters along the dyke that surrounds all Richmond. 400 years ago Richmond did not exist.
