A small town that is growing! Grew up with cows, now we have new schools and more neighborhoods! Personally, the country out here is great. No large predators, perfect for being close together but not so close it feels like you can't breathe. This has been home for 16 years and on!

Ridgefield is a great place to live! It is quiet, spacious, and truly beautiful! Our neighbors are kind and look out for us when we need it. I appreciate the small town feel that it provides, but it is close to grocery stores and other essentials.
Ridgefield is a small town in southwest Washington known for our local wildlife refuge, friendly community, and growing town. Our historic downtown offers monthly events and a weekly farmers market. Our most popular event is the 4th of July celebration where there are events happening all day including the popular parade through downtown. Due to our easy access to the Columbia River there are lots of outdoor recreational activities to do like fishing, waterskiing, kayaking, and swimming. If you are every driving through I highly recommend stopping through our town and visiting the wildlife refuge and eating a meal at one of our local restaurants.
