Richmond History

The early settlers of Richmond comprised of Quaker families from North Carolina. They arrived in the area in 1806, and settled alongside the Whitewater River. In the past, Richmond had been famous as "the lawnmower capital," since lawnmowers were manufactured here from the late nineteenth century to the mid twentieth century. It was also known as 'Rose City' in the 1950s, because several varieties of the plant were grown here.
