Within a few years a scattering of log cabins, dugouts, and a log fort had been built. In 1860, a sawmill and a schoolhouse were erected. The city was likely named in honor of LDS apostle Charles C. Rich, though it may also have been named for the rich local soil or for Richmond, London, the hometown of some of its English settlers.Richmond was incorporated in 1868.Holstein cows were brought to Richmond in 1904, and thrived so well that the town was recognized as Utah's Holstein center. In 1912, the Richmond Holstein Cow Show was the first in the county. Now called Richmond's "Black & White Days", the show continues into its 98th year, and features carnival rides, food vendors, and a horse pull parade.The town's first two creameries—Cache Valley Dairy and Union Creamery—each produced up to 40,000 pounds of milk per day in 1902. The creameries were absorbed by Utah Condensed Milk Company in 1904, and then reorganized as Sego Milk Products in 1920. For many years, the plant was the largest operation west of the Mississippi.Plan how to spend your time in Richmond and other destinations in United States using our United States trip itinerary builder tool.
