Relatively small town with a nice grade school, middle school, and high school (which also has the neighboring town of Spring Grove feeding into it). Nice kept up restaurants, including fast food, dine in, or fancy. Bad traffic only during rush hours typically.
I have resided in Richmond for three years. The comfort and acceptance I received from everyone in the town was amazing. I felt as if I had been living there for 20 plus years. I feel very comfortable and safe within the community! Richmond is definitely a town I would suggest to families.
I love small town feel and richmond is classic small town feel. It seems like the ideal place to film a movie. Raising my family in RIchmond was the best decision my husband and I made. Its a small town feel while also being close to larger cities.
