I have lived in Richford my whole life. I've seen it grow, change and I have seen it through the worst times. There is a lot of crime, drugs, and criminals that are in the town. Living on the outside of the town isn't too bad, but in the town itself is not the best experience. I also attend high school, and there are better schools to attend.

Take my word for it..nearly all these people grew up together and of you happen NOT to have been from here you'll be sorry you ever went in. By the time i left I ended up in tears on multiple occasions. Great for mental health. Avoid at all costs. I know i would if i had it to do over. In fact if you CAN avoid dumping all your money into a house here.. Avoid it. You'll be so sorry. For so many reasons.
I love the small towns where you know everyone and can always ask for help. You can drive threw the woods on your fourwheeler and see all of the animals running wild, the blackberries growing, and the views of beautiful jay peak mountains. I would never ask to live in another country. It's beautiful and peaceful here. I love the country setting.
