Richmond: A city “rich” with history
One of the first cities incorporated by the short-lived Republic of Texas in 1837, Richmond sits 30 miles southwest of Houston by the Brazos River. The city has a long and interesting history, which can be explored at the many historic points of interest that still exist today. The Morton Cemetery was established in 1825, and the Long-Smith Cottage — built around 1837 — still stands today on the grounds of the Fort Bend Museum. The Museum complex also includes the Congressman John M. and Lottie D. Moore House, which was built in 1883 and later named to the National Register of Historic Places. Other historic attractions in Richmond include the McNabb House, the 1908 Fort Bend County Courthouse, and the McFarlane House — which is now a visitors’ center. A unique fact about Richmond is the history-making mayoral term of Hilmar Moore — who served as the city’s mayor from 1949 until his death in 2012 — making him the longest-serving elected official in the U.S. There are many activities to be found in Richmond including: Clay Park and Wessendorff Park. George Park, which sits along the Brazos River, features various sports fields and a sand volleyball pit.
