The Great Richland Quiz Number One: Geography

14 Feb , 2019  

Welcome to a new feature here on 1812Blockhouse – the Great Richland Quiz!

How well do you know your own back yard? Every few days, we’ll be asking ten questions related to the county in a particular field. You are encouraged to try your hand at answering questions without the use of Google, your Amazon Echo, etc.. Then, the next day, we’ll be publishing answers to these questions.

If you feel like sharing with us how you did, send us an email to:, or comment or direct message on Facebook or Twitter.
