Visitors often tell us that our Village has something special, some magic that makes them feel so relaxed, even when they come just for the afternoon. It could be the many buildings filled with character, lovingly preserved and restored to show off our pride in our mid 1800's roots. With it's laid-back charm, it's hard to believe Richmond is only about an hour from Chicago, Rockford or Milwaukee.
