The town was established in 1843 in South Africa's inland plateau. It was founded to meet the religious needs of a growing farming community, but unlike most Karoo towns the church was not built as the physical focal point of the village; rather, the centrepiece is the village square. Unusually for this arid region, it was built astride a river which has been cited as the reason for the irregular street grid.[3] The town has a substantial number of well-preserved houses and public buildings of Victorian and Edwardian Karoo style, with additions of verandahs dating from the 1920s. The Dutch Reformed Church building, the spiritual if not the physical centre around which the town evolved, dates from 1847, with a tower completed in 1909. It celebrated a centenary in 2009.

The naming of the town originated in the desire of the townsfolk to honour the new Governor of the Cape, Sir Peregrine Maitland, who took office in 1844. Maitland declined, however, suggesting instead that it be named after his father-in-law, the Duke of Richmond. It was officially named Richmond in October 1845.[3] It was a resort town for European aristocratic patients of lung diseases such as whooping cough and tuberculosis in the 1800s due to its clean air and mineral rich waters.

About Car Batteries

A car battery is the component that powers the vehicle. Its stored energy is not only for this purpose however. Car batteries supply power to a host of other items such as navigation systems and radios when the car is switched off. This power supply remains limited unless the cars alternator can recharge the battery. Recharging can only happen when the car is in use. When a car remains idle over a long amount of time the battery will discharge leaving the car unable to be driven. This is just one of the factors that needs to be watched out for that leads to battery failure. Some other signs are
  • Headlights becoming dimmer
  • It takes longer to start up the car
  • Car batteries in Richmond losing power much faster during cold weather

These are some of the signals letting you know that it is time for a check-up of the battery or a full replacement. It can be very dangerous to go and do a check-up by yourself as car batteries can explode. Car owners can clean their car batteries in Richmond, when corrosion occurs, with a baking soda and water mixture. Precaution should still be kept though by wearing safety goggles and gloves and not having any open flames near the engine. This includes not smoking during the cleaning process. The age of a cars battery is also a factor to getting it looked at for potential problems. Car batteries usually becomes problematic around 5 years of age, but maintenance is advised from 3 years and onward on a yearly basis to avoid major problems.
