    Elevated ground floor

    ON  MONUMENT  AVENUE

    Most houses along Monument Avenue have elevated (at least 1-2 ft; 0.5 m) ground floors like this one on my picture. Is it because of high risk of floods? Well, James river flows a little bit to south. There are sometimes heavy rains and rarely coastal hurricanes make a direct hit on Richmond.
