Located at the junction of Interstate
45 and State Highway 14, on Pisgah Ridge twelve miles south of Corsicana
in Navarro County Texas.
Richland was first settled in the late 1840s. Asa Chambers had
established a store on the trail from Corsicana to Franklin by 1848, when
a post office, named Richland Crossing after nearby Richland Creek,
opened in his store. The store, which moved and changed ownership several
times, continued to form the nucleus of the community until the early
1870s. When the Houston and Texas Central Railway was built through the
area in 1871, the station on the Pisgah Ridge near the store was
designated Richland, and a new community began to develop around the
depot. A post office named Richland began operating in 1878, and by the
mid-1890s the town had two steam gristmills and cotton gins, three
general stores, a grocer, two blacksmiths, two saloons, a hardware store,
a bank, and an estimated population of 150. The first school had begun
operating around the time of the Civil War, and by 1906 the town had a
two-teacher school with an enrollment of seventy-five. Richland continued
to prosper during the 1920s, reaching a peak population of 750 in 1929.
During the 1930s its population began to decline, part because of the
Great Depression. By 1950 the town had twelve businesses and a population
of 369. The decline continued during the 1960s and 1970s, and by 1990
Richland had 244 residents and one business.
The current population is 264.
