There is reportedly a "lost city" here. The theory is "During World War II, frightened Richmonders were sure that Hitler would bomb them. Richmond is, of course, the former capital of the Confederacy and was therefore quite important to the Nazis (yeah right. ha.). The alternative theory is that it was a Cold War fear. Hard to say. Seriously, there used to be a major air force base here and it appeared to be a threat. So a LOT of money was appropriated and a second, fake Richmond was built outside of the city. In the event of an air raid, power to the real Richmond would be cut and lights would go on in the fake city. Apparently from the air it looked similar enough to the Richmond of 60 years ago that from the sky you couldn't tell the difference!! Well, Richmond never got bombed by Hitler or the Soviets.... "
It sounds pretty interesting and like a good outdoorsy place to take my pups. I'm totally going. You can see pics and read more about it here: ***NEWS FLASH!*** LOST CITY OF RICHMOND FOUND... FOR SALE!!!
