Agrippa Cooper arrived in the Richmond area and built a homestead in the mid-1850's. Other settlers began to arrive and by 1860 a sawmill and a schoolhouse were built to support the growing community. The town might have been named for Richmond, England, former home of some of the settlers, or it might have been named after Charles C. Rich, an Apostle of the LDS Church.

Someone brought some Holstein cows to the area in 1904 and they thrived. Shortly Richmond was recognized as "the Holstein Capital of Utah" and an annual show formed that is now more than 100 years in operation.

Part of the movie Napolean Dynamite was filmed in Richmond.

The population of Richmond is up more than 20% since 2000.
