In the fall of 1859, Agrippa Cooper made camp with five other families at Brower Springs in the Cache Valley. The following autumn brought 20 more families to the area—including John Bair, William H. Lewis, Francis Stewart, and Robert D. Petty, and thus the town of Richmond began to grow. It is a common belief that Richmond was named in honor of Charles C. Rich, an LDS Church apostle. Throughout the early 1900s, Richmond thrived as a hub of commerce and industry, with the population reaching almost 5,000. Today, Richmond takes pride in its agricultural roots and celebrates the longest-running Holstein dairy show west of the Mississippi River with the Black and White Days.
