A sundial on the new Virginia Women’s Monument in Richmond includes a typo familiar to local residents: Loudoun is spelled wrong, with the second "u" omitted.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported the error Tuesday, one day after the monument in Capitol Square was unveiled.
A spokeswoman for the Virginia Department of General Services told the Times-Dispatch she didn’t know who was responsible for proofreading the spelling of localities.
The Associated Press reported the monument honors some of the state's trailblazing women. About a decade in the making, the display will eventually feature a dozen life-sized bronze statues places in a granite plaza near the Capitol.
Gov. Ralph Northam (D) chairs the 19-member Virginia Women's Monument Commission, while former state Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple is the vice chair.
“We will confer with the Department of General Services to develop a plan to address the issue and make the correction needed,” Whipple told CBS 6 in Richmond.
