About Richmond

The quaint little Texas town of Richman is located in Fort Bend County and is the county seat, home to about 12,000 residents. It originally got its start back in 1822 when it was called Fort Bend but over the years it was named after Richmond England, the town was among the 19 cities first incorporated by the short-lived Republic of Texas in 1837. Because of this, Richmond is known for its historical buildings, government agencies, and many nonprofit organizations.
