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.
