We are a community that was founded in 1809 by Lancelot Mayes. It is understood from history and believed by our Historical Society that our community's name came from a weed that grew rich in our fields. 

In 1967, the Village of Richfield was formed and incorporated. The Village adopted a Charter, which allowed for the voting of a Mayor and seven council members. As of the 2010 census, we are a community of approximately 3,650 and growing. The community was founded on an agricultural basis. However, as times have changed, we are moving toward a mixed community of residential and commercial development. 

As with our forefathers, it is the hopes of the community to allow for growth but to maintain the rural character and nature that makes the Village of Richfield so unique.

Mayor's Corner

Currently, the new parking lot at the Village Green is underway.  

We anticipate the parking lot will be completed by July 24th. The plans can be viewed on our home page.

We also will be doing some mounding and planting of trees and shrubs in front of the old CF property on Brecksville Road. This plan was recommended to Council from our Tree and Landscape Commission.

Paving projects in the Village on State routes 303, 176 and Brecksville Road will begin soon. More information will be posted when dates are confirmed with ODOT. 

Also along with warm weather, we see many children out on their bikes, on our sidewalks and parks, so please be mindful and take care when driving through our community.

Have a wonderful summer and enjoy each day that we are given.
